The founder of the Piggly Wiggly convenience store started building this mansion for himself, but ran out of money halfway through. The city of Memphis purchased the shell of a house and turned it into a museum. So the 'palace' looks like a mansion on the outside, but not like a mansion on the inside.
My mom, sister, and I took my nephews there to see the dinosaur exhibit they have going right now.
Lots of casts of skeletons and such.
I didn't take many pictures with this camera. I'll do another post with pictures I took on a different camera.
|3 year old nephew was terrified of them (even though he was so excited to go see them!)|
|This animatronic dino at the exhibit entrance was especially frightening for him. He wouldn't let my mom put him down.|
|After the palace, we went to Wendy's|
|Some of us behaved better than others. ;)|
The pink palace had many very interesting looking exhibits, but we basically jogged through some of them because of the boys, so I would like to go back some time. It's free between the hours of 2 and 4, I believe. But if you're interested in going, you should check their website first.
