Memorable Memphians

Memphis celebrates its 200th birthday in 2019! Celebrate with us as you learn more about the historic figures that called Memphis home. Hear how Memphians made their mark on history and science while viewing artifacts and materials that will bring these historic Memphians to life.

LIfe at the Ends of the Earth

Our spring exhibit, Race to the Ends of Earth, tells of the story of the first intrepid explorers to reach the South Pole.  While this forbidding environment is incredibly dangerous for humans, many animals call it home!  Join us as we use specimens and hands-on activities to explore the special adaptations that help them survive in this harsh but fragile environment.
