Where are we going today?

Journey to distant galaxies, explore the solar system and settle back in a comfortable seat in the Sharpe Planetarium as you take a cosmic voyage through the universe. The Lida Gammill Sharpe Planetarium, a 165-seat theater-in-the-round, uses planetarium technology to project star fields, visual images and patterns on a domed ceiling. Augmented by a superb sound system, the Planetarium programs are a treat for the eyes and ears.

    Loved the planetarium and 3D theaters. The exhibits were OK , many of my friends and then including myself, felt that most of the exhibits focused way to much on Race. All the exhibits had something on how one race was oppressed by the other and to be quite honest, its completely pointless. The museum gave focus only on the role of blacks in Memphis, not giving credit for others that have accomplished things too. In the WW1 part they only pointed out the race difference in the officers. Why can't they talk about the trenches instead?
