  1. Thanks for posting all the details! I hope we make it to at least one - Elmwood is the only place on that list we've been since I moved to Memphis 5 years ago. Need to get on the ball with museum-going!

  2. I've been to the Belz museum. It's actually really cool, but I think a lot of people don't know about it!


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
