Memphis offers some great museums and science centers, including the Pink Palace Museum and the Sharpe Planetarium. These museums teach the history, science, and technology of the mid-South.
The Pink Palace Museum is a large museum that teaches the history, science, and technology of the mid-South. Run by the City of Memphis Parks and Neighborhoods Division and Memphis Museum Inc., the Pink Palace Museum boasts a display of Piggly Wiggly, one of the first self service grocery stores in the country. It features changing exhibits of history, science, and nature monthly.
Grab a seat at the Sharpe Planetarium, where an immense dome is filled up by the more immense stars and planets of the night sky. This is a fantastic facility for any amateur astronomers or astrophysicists, or simply anyone who loves stargazing.
