    If you think visiting a museum is boring, you will change your mind after coming to the Pink Museum. I mean, even my father's unfavorable opinion was changed and he really came around and enjoyed himself. The Pink Museum is many things in one: a multi-themed museum saluting local Memphis, Tenneesean and US history/culture, a planetarium, IMAX theater, an interactive musical playground geared for both kids and adults, and an architectural point of interest.

    Pink Palace mansion

    You will learn a lot about Memphis and the Mid South by going to the Pink Palace. With displays on the Pig (Piggly Wiggly) - the First Supermarket, IMAX theatre, art, dioramas on the regions history, dinosaurs and fossils - it has a lot to see.

    Most cities have a Museum Center similar to this one, but usually not located in an original 1920's Mansion.

    Here you'll find an IMAX Theatre, Planetarium and a regional history museum.

    I actually liked the replica of the first Piggly Wiggly frocery store, and the hand-carved miniature circus.

    See the Pink Palace, former home of the founder of the Piggly Wiggly supermarket chain. There's a replica of the first Piggly Wiggly, and (when we were there), an exhibit on 'Famous Black Memphians,' like anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells. Don't miss Beale Street, historic local home of much great jazz and blues--and an influence on Elvis. See the homage the city pays to the other Memphis--the huge glass pyramid and the neo-Egyptian buildings at the zoo. If you have time left over, watch the ducks waddle in and out of the lobby of the grand Peabody hotel (how did they get there? I don't remember). Then enjoy a real down-home Delta meal, like 'dirty' rice and peach cobbler. Graceland? We didn't have time!
