view web site ›'s insider take:

The headquarters for several Memphis attractions, this cultural and natural history museum adjoins its namesake, a pink, Georgian marble mansion built by Clarence Saunders, "inventor" of the world's first self-serve grocery store, the Piggly Wiggly. The museum's exhibits include a replica of the original store, creepy dioramas detailing the history of the Memphis area, and kid-pleasing animatronic dinosaurs; several rooms of the mansion are open for self-guided tours. The Sharpe Planetarium and an IMAX theater round out the on-site offerings, but you can also pick up information here about other sights in the Pink Palace family of museums, including the Lichterman Nature Center (5992 Quince Rd.; 901-767-7322; closed end of Nov through Feb) and the Coon Creek Science Center, which is open only to groups of 15 to 35 participants (2983 Hardin Graveyard Rd.; 901-320-6320; closed end of Nov through Feb).
