The Pink Palace in Memphis is a family of museums that includes the Pink Palace Museum (fixed and rotating exhibits), Planetarium (astronomy), Coon Creek Science Center, Lichterman Nature Center (museum of native wildlife) and historic homes (Mallory-Neely House, Magevney House Victorian Houses). Thanks to the great folks at Memphis Pink Palace Family of Museums and Memphis Travel (big shout out to Ronda and Jeff!), we were given an opportunity to visit Pink Palace and catch a 3D documentary – National Parks Adventure 3D, which was amazing!

What’s at Memphis Pink Palace?
After grabbing a quick bite at Bella Caffe, we saw a model of what Pink Palace will be in the near future…
At the museum itself, there are 3 main sections: Natural History, Cultural History of the Mid-South and Memphis History.
Unfortunately, we do not agree with the theory of evolution (humans evolved from ape-like being), shown at the Natural History Section, due to our faith in Christ and that we are God’s creation. Hence, we moved on to the cultural section of the museum. There, we saw the cotton gin. An invention that reduced the number of slaves required to separate cotton from its seeds but ironically caused the cotton trade to boom, resulting in the massive trade of slavery in USA as learnt from the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.
We also saw a miniature circus made by Clyde Parke. He spent 30 years, up to 18 hours a day, carving the clowns, animals, wagons and crowds…
We also saw the replica of Clarence Saunder’s Piggly Wiggly grocery store…
It was definitely cool to see that some brands such as Quaker Oats are still around today!
We ended our trip to Memphis Pink Palace with a 3D show – National Parks Adventure 3D. Having been to Yellowstone National Park, Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park, it’s really cool to “revisit” them through this amazing documentary narrated by Robert Redford.

Unfortunately, the Pink Palace Mansion was under construction when we visited. Nonetheless, we hope you have enjoyed our coverage of Memphis Pink Palace Family of Museums and remember to catch the 3D movies while you’re there!
