While the National Civil Rights Museum get a bulk of the downtown press (and rightfully so), this lower level collection is an under-appreciated find. So worth the time (and plan for a good chunk) to really enjoy the extensive Asian collection and well curated Jewish...More

Happened upon this museum, and so glad I did. Truly amazing collection with broad inventory spanning centuries. Was able to enjoy the museum virtually alone (sad more people were not there). Did not get the recorded headphones, but noticed they are an option.

A great little gem in old Memphis. The bulk of the museum consists of Chinese art, mainly carvings of jade, ivory, tiger-eye, malachite, azurite and so on and the workmanship is simply amazing. A smaller section is devoted to Jewish artwork from Europe and a...More

We were surprised to discover this museum in downtown Memphis. Many local people do not know it is there, and it is not very advertised. The jade carvings are breathtaking, grand and represent a wide variety of themes and carvers. To think this was once...More
