It's hard to put into words what it's like to visit the Peabody, especially the hotel lobby and restaurant... don't miss out on the marching of the ducks and cool Southern architecture.

This place is also know as the Belz Museum of Asian and Judaic Art. Museum founder, Phillip Belz was the patriarch of Belz Enterprises, owner of the Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis. First of all...you don't need to be Asian or Jewish to appreciate this museum. This place is incredible! For the breadth of the collections and caliber of the pieces...this place rivals anything in DC or NYC! Just amazing. Some of the largest pieces of Jade sculpture I've ever seen in my life. And...not just 1 or 2...but 30-40...maybe more...incredible intricate carvings and sculptures...and this is just the Asian part...which is mostly Chinese. The Judaica part of the museum is smaller but just as impressive. There is a room dedicated to the Holocaust with photos of Memphian survivors and their bios and another room with photos of "Oriental" Jews from Yemen and Portugal. For $5 or whatever the entrance fee was, you get ALOT of BANG for the buck.…

Best place in town to see a view of the city. Plus there's a duck show for the young kids and the architecture is outstanding with a few shops and restaurants to eat at.

expensive place with only ducks to bring you in. If it wasn't for the hype I don't think people would go in for the 5 minutes.

This used to be a great place to stroll thru- it had lots of nice shops- coffees ect- movie theater ect- as far as we could tell- it is totally shut down now. Really a shame.
