Ready. Set. Open!
Pink Palace Mansion Re-Opening December 8
After nearly two years of renovation and construction, the highly anticipated re-opening of the Pink Palace Mansion will be taking place December 8. The re-opening will be the premiere of the Mansion’s new and refurbished exhibits including a totally reconstructed original Piggly Wiggly Store replica and Country Store, along with a restored Clyde Parke Miniature Circus.
The Clyde Parke Miniature Circus exhibit will reside on the second story of the Mansion which has not been open to the public since 1978.
The Pink Palace Museum is bringing back some of its most popular exhibits and artifacts to the Mansion such as the Cossitt Library which will include the Cossitt Gallery that will recreate the first museum in Memphis. There will be over 600 artifacts on display similar to how they were shown in the early 19th century.
In addition to bringing back to life some of the Museum’s favorite exhibits, the Mansion will house plush new event rental facilities, state-of-the art lighting and a refurbished grand staircase.
