A great little gem in old Memphis. The bulk of the museum consists of Chinese art, mainly carvings of jade, ivory, tiger-eye, malachite, azurite and so on and the workmanship is simply amazing. A smaller section is devoted to Jewish artwork from Europe and a...More

We were surprised to discover this museum in downtown Memphis. Many local people do not know it is there, and it is not very advertised. The jade carvings are breathtaking, grand and represent a wide variety of themes and carvers. To think this was once...More

Totally worth $6 per adult to walk around and take in some amazing works of art. Along with some history. I would not recommend small children that have problems not touching things.

We discovered this museum as we were walking along Main St. and stopped in for a visit the next day. This is definitely worth a visit. It's only $6 for entry ($5 for seniors) and houses a remarkable collection of Asiatic jade and ivory artifacts...More

This museum is definitely worth the six dollars I spent. You can wander around in there for ever and at times it's even Erie but I definitely enjoyed this one. Anyone into art or Asian or Judaic history would enjoy this museum a lot.

Our 15 year old daughter wanted to visit while on vacation in Memphis. We as a family really liked it. There is a lot of amazing art work from Jade to Ivory. She loves art and we spent a couple of hours here.
