Saturday is the best day to go!
Aug 2019
This museum has a room with wonderful Egyptian exhibits. It is Memphis, after all. The larger rooms have rotating exhibits that will vary and have limited runs. Because of this it is a place you can return time and again and still enjoy. By attending on Saturdays, you can park for FREE in the Central Avenue parking lot. When you cross at the pedestrian cross walk, continue straight south and the second building on the right is the Art Museum. For children, they need to be able to keep their hands to themselves. Art is out with no barriers but signs saying do not touch. Children will love wandering the campus and looking for the painted Tigers from the U of M 100th Anniversary celebration. Admission is free. Hours are Monday through Saturday 9am to 5 pm during exhibits. Always check first to make sure they are not closed to change exhibits.

I went my the campus to drop by and see what they had to offer. Free and non-permit parking is quite difficult to find. There is a parking lot across from the school or a garage for $2 an hour. I walked all the way over to the gallery and it had a ppl ri red sign that they we remodeling. Wish I knew before all the effort to park.

By far, this is the reason to visit this museum. An adequate amount of artifacts and several tomb covers with one mummy to show.

The Museum is very small but well kept. They have a mummy and many artifacts. We are a home school family and we enjoyed this very much.

Free Museum - Fairly small
Feb 2011
The Egyptian collection is pretty good. Most of the collection is from more recent Egypt history. My husband was hoping for more older pieces, but it was still impressive. It was on the small side - a single room. The other exhibits on display at the time didn't impress either of us, but they rotate them out. Overall, worth a visit, especially since it's free!

Worth a visit
This is a small art gallery on the University of Memphis. They do have student works there. However, there is also an Egyptian exhibit that was pretty impressive. There are artifacts, as well as a sarcophagus and a mummy.

It's not large or anything, but it was free, which was awesome & made it definitely worth it.

Very educational, a must see for all memphians as well visitors.
My daughter and her classmates where awed over the original art pieces. I was expecting to see replicas and copies. It was mouth opening to view the girl mummy and we thought the tour guide did an excellent job!
