Known locally as the Jade Museum, it has some truly spectacular artwork. It's very inexpensive, and walking distance from the Peabody. If you can't find it, just stop in at the peabody and ask the concierge for directions :)

If you've exhausted most of the typical Memphis tourist stops, head for this museum for an hour or two. Very impressive collection of enormous jade carvings, so much that it's hard to describe in words. Amazing.

I've visited dozens of art museums and the Belz Museum contains some of the most exquisite and elaborate jade and ivory pieces that I've seen. My only criticism is that many of the pieces are not well described. I would have liked more information.

Nice art collection. Fascinating large pieces of carved jade. Offered free movie on Saturdays and Sundays (great way to get out of summer heat). No other movies at this time downtown. Small gift shop.

Belz collected many pieces of Asian art: delicate jade, nephrite, ivory carving on massive pieces. Silks, puppets, household items, etc. The other side of the museum houses his Judaic art collection. Vibrant paintings, sculptures, torah arks, and a Violano-Virtuoso mechanical museum machine--you can put in...More
