A Hidden Treasure in Memphis!

So many items on display that you will never see anywhere else. The signage is informative and I always learn something new each time I go.

I had read the reviews but knew my husband and 2 sons had no interest in going - so this was probably a stop I was going to miss. However, when my husband laid down with me and the 4 year old to take a nap on our last day in Memphis (this is usually a mommy job so that... More

A wonderful collection of Judea and Asain Art. The pieces were amazing on both sides. Located remotely awkwardly but never the less very well displayed. The gift shop was very nice as well. Had a holocaust display as well.

The Asian collection is large in size and scope. Very accessible and easy to navigate. We were amazed by the virtuosity and complexity of the artistry and it is a don't miss experience. Judiac art was also massive in size - but we were not bowled over by the artistry - but we are not so interested in contemporary art.

This was our first stop on our vacation. Read previous reviews on the TripAdvisor site and saw nothing but great things. I've had great experiences in the past following recommendations off the site so we decided to add this to our Day 1 itinerary. The only negative thing I have to say is that we only had just under 2... More

Did not know what to expect with this location, and I was blown away. Some of the best $6 that I have ever spent. The exhibits are breathtaking and worth a long slow stroll through them. I have never seen such ornate and beautiful ivory and jade carvings. For a private collections, this is extensive and just keeps filling room... More

I didn't know what to expect from a Museum of Asian and Judaic Art. When I entered the exhibits I was amazed at the size of the collection. One of the most fascinating collections of Jade and Ivory I have ever seen.
