We had a day to spare whilst staying in Memphis, travelling from overseas, and stumbled across a flyer for the Pink Palace at our hotel. As a family of 2 adults and a 6 year old boy, there was plenty for all of us. We spent 5 hours at the museum in total, watching the 3D movie and the planetarium show, along with the entire museum. We had a great time. I agree, there was a bit of everything here, and that worked perfectly for us, keeping us all very interested and still feeling well educated by the time we left. Well done, you should be proud if this little gem Memphis.

Best part was walking through the Piggy Wiggly. Museum didn't seem to have a flow. A lot of good information just no logical connection.

I didn't really like it there wasn't much in there and I thought it was very over priced for what it was. I wish I would have skipped this one
