This place and the displays are second to none. the Memphis group design/creations are absolutely amazing and a must see. David Bowie's pieces are breathtaking as well. the staff is ultra friendly and knowledgable.

The museum is small but there are some interesting items and it turned out being a fun stop. We especially like Ms. Mary Ann she had a lot of information, including where to go for happy hour (we took her advice it was fantastic).

Small place but full of very cool modernism furniture. We liked seeing some of the furniture David Bowie owned, being a fan. Our tour guide was very informative as well.

We were lucky enough to go when they were displaying some of David Bowie's furniture collection. It's very small with an $8 entrance fee but where else could I have seen pieces of Bowie's eclectic collection.

It is $8 for adults to view the actual Modernism Museums exhibit but the gift shop across the street has no charge.
