Memphis is packed with family vacation classics: a zoo with lions, orangutans-even pandas. A baseball field where Minor Leaguers hustle and stadium food tastes best shared. The kind of museums that field trips are made of, with firetrucks to climb on and dinosaur skeletons to gawk at.
But as it goes in Memphis, surprise: museum mainstays have evolved, adding hands-on galleries to art exhibits, touchscreen activities to history displays and slick advancements like a planetarium that stimulates real-time view of the cosmos.
