“Pay what you can day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

I really like this museum. I took my wife to the Armed and Dangerous exibition. It was amazing to see the weaponry used over the last 3000 years of human existence. This place really makes you think. If your into history like I am you will love the place. There are two ways to save money when visiting this place. One is by getting a 2 for 1 discount online from the picounts website and the other is to visit on pay what you can day. Either way youll be spending a few dollars to see thousands of years of history all in one place. You really cant beat that.

“A surprising Museum for Memphis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

A lot of folks in Memphis don't realize there is a wonderful art program in town and Brooks Museum plays an important part in that. Brooks will often display the works of local students, as well as as the traditional paintings the museum owns. There is a very secial feeling in the Brooks museum and everyone should visit.

“Beautiful old museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We went to the brooks for a private party and enjoyed seeing the "Tiffany Collection". Some very large stained glass pieces. We always enjoy going here as like most museums the exhibits do change pretty often.

“Small but Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This part of town is perfect -- spacious park with shady trees, events held at the Levitt Shell, the zoo is within walking distance, and Cooper Young district is a few stop lights away. I loved walking around the museum while attending MCA. This small museum actually attracts a lot of "big name" art shows. My favorite was the Andy Warhol exhibit!
