In honor of the ancient Egyptian counterpart to the modern American city of Memphis, the local university maintains a museum featuring a good representation of the usual items from the City by the Nile, including a mummy, papyruses, and various implements and household goods. Another permanent exhibit is the Spirit of Africa, which has artifacts and sculptures from West Africa. In addition—and somewhat unexpectedly—the museum houses an interesting collection of miniatures of American furniture and a good smattering of American and European prints.
