Summary

The Belz Museum of Asian and Judaic Art opened in 1998 as the Peabody Place Museum and in January 2007 it received its present name.

The museum's collection is based on the private collection of Memphis developers Jack and Marilyn Belz, who owned the Peabody Hotel and Peabody Place. The Belz features over 1,000 objects, including works of jade, tapestries, furniture, carvings, and other historical and artistic objects. The museum also houses one of the finest collections of pieces from the Qing dynasty.
