The Museum is very small but well kept. They have a mummy and many artifacts. We are a home school family and we enjoyed this very much.

This is a small art gallery on the University of Memphis. They do have student works there. However, there is also an Egyptian exhibit that was pretty impressive. There are artifacts, as well as a sarcophagus and a mummy. It's not large or anything, but it was free, which was awesome & made it definitely worth it.

My daughter and her classmates where awed over the original art pieces. I was expecting to see replicas and copies. It was mouth opening to view the girl mummy and we thought the tour guide did an excellent job!
