Totally worth $6 per adult to walk around and take in some amazing works of art. Along with some history. I would not recommend small children that have problems not touching things.

We discovered this museum as we were walking along Main St. and stopped in for a visit the next day. This is definitely worth a visit. It's only $6 for entry ($5 for seniors) and houses a remarkable collection of Asiatic jade and ivory artifacts...More

This place is amazing. Tons of insanely detailed sculptures and art work from China, a few things from Japan, and a collection of Judaic art. I was expecting a small museum with some nice pieces, but instead there was room after room of exquisite artwork....More

This museum is definitely worth the six dollars I spent. You can wander around in there for ever and at times it's even Erie but I definitely enjoyed this one. Anyone into art or Asian or Judaic history would enjoy this museum a lot.

Our 15 year old daughter wanted to visit while on vacation in Memphis. We as a family really liked it. There is a lot of amazing art work from Jade to Ivory. She loves art and we spent a couple of hours here.

The Asian art is breathtaking. The intricate detail in the workmanship is amazing. This museum is a wonderful quiet learning experience that is displayed beautifully. We enjoyed our afternoon exploring this attraction.

The Belz family has a great eye for Asian art. I was amazed at the detail in many of the pieces, and took lots of photographs. Unfortunately, the Judaic art section was closed due to a water leak.

Asian and oriental art collected by Belz family. Well displayed and very reasonably priced. In downtown near restaurants and Beale St.
