the metal museum is a unique place in Memphis with very interesting things to see. Even better is the fact that you can bring metal things that may require repair for them to fix. Sits right on the river and is a very pleasant place to visit.

This little gem on the Mississippi River Bluff is in a spot that is central to Memphis history. With stunning views of the river, the grounds are dotted with whimsical metal works of all sizes and shapes. A small museum displays distinctive creative metal works and visual designs and the grounds contain a blacksmith shop as well. Across the street, Chickasaw Heritage Park is the site on which a 16th-century Spanish fort and before it a Chickasaw village stood. Burial mounds and a monument to the Chickasaw people and the Trail of Tears exist there today. The Metal Museum resides within a few renovated buildings that are part of a large historic hospital complex once active here. The remainder of the complex is still in this spot, but not yet restored.

Super cool place. All the guys and gals I'm the Smithy and foundry were very nice and took the time to answer all our questions. I wish we would have known when they were doing the casting though. Just missed it.

This activity is better if the weather is nice The grounds have many metal sculptures worth looking at closely and you would not be comfortable doing so in the rain

From Our Editors

Metal Museum celebrates the centuries-long tradition of metalwork with exhibits, restoration, and classes. Its exhibitions include in-depth looks at contemporary knife making, kinetic sculpture that imitates the mechanics of the solar system, and solo collections by prominent artists. The museum even gives folks a glimpse into the process by showcasing professional blacksmiths at work. Visitors who are inspired by the fine and intricate lines in a metal sculpture can take a class on metalworking and hone their skills in the onsite foundry. The museum also regularly honors working artists and trains young people to work with diverse materials including hollowware, jewelry, and enameling. Every year, a three-day fundraiser gives folks the chance to have professional artists repair their metal items and see demonstrations by artists from around the country.
