The Pink Palace of the Future

Pardon our dust, we are moving some exhibits!

The Piggly Wiggly, Country Store and Circus are unavailable for viewing. 

The Pink Palace Re-Imagined: Building a better Pink Palace for you!

The Pink Palace Mansion, along with three iconic exhibits, is under renovation. When the Mansion reopens in June, 2018, the Piggly Wiggly replica, the Country Store and the Clyde Parke Miniature Circus will all be on display inside the Mansion.  

Here is a chance to learn more about the Pink Palace Re-Imagined:

Our most recent temporary exhibit is of what is about to come at the Pink Palace.  The exhibit consists of several architectural white models representing the Pink Palace of the Future as well as concepts of the upcoming galleries.

The exhibit can be found in the common area adjacent to escalator, museum store and restaurant.

Exhibits will be updated and highly interactive.

The themes are:

  • Physical Sciences and Geology
  • Life Sciences, including fitness, nutrition, health and wellness
  • Regional and Cultural History

Each area can be entered separately or the visitor can move through them in order.

Pink Palace Treasures:

  • The Piggly Wiggly Store
  • Clyde Parke Circus
  • Shrunken Head…etc.

These items will be moved to a place of honor in the Mansion:  The second floor of the Mansion’s East Wing will once again be open to the public after being empty for many years, and will house the Clyde Parke Circus.

In the meantime, please enjoy the rest of our cultural and natural history exhibits, as well as our temporary exhibits, CTI 3D Giant Theater, AutoZone Dome at the Sharpe Planetarium, Metro Eats, and our Museum Stores, all open for your visit.
