The Pink Palace- Memphis

Monday, February 18, 2013

While in Memphis, Gerry and I are excited to see some of the city's great premier attractions.
Highly recommended is the Pink Palace Museum which is a major science and history museum featuring a wide range of fascinating exhibits. This museum is part of a larger family of museums in the Pink Palace Family of Museums.

The Pink Palace, features some great exhibits which relate directly to the history of Memphis. One of the exhibits is an exact replica of a Piggly Wiggly, the very first self-serve supermarket which opened in 1916. It will be interesting to see how much things have or have not changed in over a hundred years. 

The museum is also filled with exhibits featuring social change as well as archaeological findings.

The Pink Palace is also the home of the only IMAX theatre,( which I love) in the mid-south as well as the Sharpe Planetarium.The planetarium is a large theatre in which you can take a journey through the galaxy projected onto the ceiling in a spectacular fashion that is both entertaining and educational at the same time.
With a great variety of exhibitions and attractions the Pink Palace is definitely not to be missed when we are exploring Memphis.
