Teachers are free! I accompanied a group of 23 middle grade students and two teachers to the museum today. The information was very engaging for everyone. The tour lasted about an hour and ended with a museum scavenger hunt that reviewed the highlights of the tour. The teacher was able to take the scavenger hunt sheets back to school for... More

I'd give this 10 stars if I could. It was astounding. I've traveled extensively and have seen great museums around the world, but I have never seen such an impressive a collection of Asian art. One of the things that greets you as you start into the museum is a full-sized, exquisitely detailed and ornamented horse and carriage -- made... More

Our son's wedding pictures are to die for. The staff even helped tear down the decorations. No one in their wildest dreams thought of this place for a wedding reception in our arena of friends. People are still talking about it. Just go for the tour!!

The museum is oddly located off of main st and tucked into the basement at Peabody place. The collection is much larger than I expected and each and every piece was enjoyable. The craftsmanship portrayed in the ivory and jade work are magnificent.

One of my favorite museums in Memphis with a great collection of Asian and Judaic Art. I love the special events hosted by this museum and their well stocked gift shop.

This museum has a fantastic collection of oriental and Judaic art. The pieces need to be seen to be truly appreciated. Photos do not do them justice. Although this is a small museum, you will need about 1.5 hours to go round it, it must be in our top 5 for the quality of the exhibits. make this the bit... More

This was the first museum I came to on my trip to Memphis because it had great reviews. It was really nice and a great value. Not a place for children since not many things are behind glass. I think I was the only person there, it was a slow day maybe. It took me almost two hrs to go... More

I learned about this museum here on Trip Advisor. It truly was the highlight of our anniversary weekend in Memphis. The low $6 cost makes this one hard to say no to. The splendor, history, and knowledge that the exhibits have are worth an infinite amount. We are definitely sharing this experience with friends/family. Looking forward to returning again.

Hard to find if you aren't looking for it, and it's in the basement! It's a non-profit museum with a limited advertising budget. However, once you get there, you are treated to an incredible Chinese exhibit of carved mammoth teeth, jade and other beautiful items of art. The Judaica exhibit is different from others I have seen and very interesting.... More
