The art and artifacts are truly amazing and all one of a kind. Actually only a few blocks from the National Civil Rights Museum. Great day in downtown Memphis.

If you're into museums, this one will "wow" you. Absolutely breath-taking works of art, especially the Asian carvings and embroidery. The Judaic paintings and silver artifacts are, too, and there's a small area of Holocaust exhibits. I've been to a LOT of museums of all...More
