It’s smaller than I anticipated but the collection they have was good. There were a few exhibits that were closed, so we didn’t get to see a lot.

The collection and the museum itself are beautiful. We spent about 2 hours and were able to see nearly all of the collection, and didn't feel overwhelmed. Set in a gorgeous park and neighborhood, this museum will give visitors a sense of what makes Memphis...More

An oasis of quiet, full of such fine art in distinctive permanent exhibits and special temporary ones. Quite enjoyed the building itself as did our friends and our 21-yr-old daughter and her guest from New York. Reasonable admission, good size for part of an afternoon,...More

I was surprised to see how empty the museum was... a lot of nice pieces spread throughout three floors (the main level is the largest, with smaller spaces in the basement and the 2nd floor). A good mix of contemporary American art and some classical...More
