Pink Palace Museum

Whether you're a museum buff, or just want to see a massive pink building, the Pink Palace Museum is well worth stopping by when you're in Memphis. Covering a diverse array of subjects ranging from archaeology to chemistry, the Pink Palace Museum serves as the mid-south's major science and historical museum.

The headquarters for the museum, a mansion made from pink Georgian marble, served as the private residence of a wealthy entrepreneur until he faced some financial misfortunes. He turned it over to the city of Memphis, and since the late 1920s it has contained a variety of exhibits, many of them focusing on Memphis history. Exhibit topics today range from a commemoration of the invention of the supermarket, to features of Native American pottery, dinosaur fossils, and a miniature circus.
