Memphis Brooks Museum of Art
Memphis' main museum is housed in a marble building completed in 1916. The architecturally beautiful rooms house an outstanding collection of medieval art and a small but worthwhile collection of Impressionist works. One room is dedicated to a "touch" exhibit for vision-impaired visitors. Temporary exhibits include a patriotic show held during the Memphis in May Festival . The restaurant, the Brushmark, is a fine place to lunch, especially when the outside patio is open, which looks out on Overton Park .
My partner and I are from the UK, and we visited Memphis Brooks Museum of Art whilst on holiday. Their collection is superb and we spent 1.5 hours looking around the exhibition. The admission price was extremely cheap so we felt compelled to give a donation the help support their museum.
The restaurant is very pleasant with good food and excellent service, and again it is very reasonably priced.
If you're in Memphis soon DO go to the Brooks Museum of Art. It's well worth the visit.
