“heavy metal.”

The National Ornamental Metal Museum is a museum in Memphis, Tennessee for the collection, preservation, and exhibition of historical and contemporary metalwork. The museum is housed in a 1930's brick building on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River that was formerly used as a U.S. Marine Hospital. Leased from the government by Abe Sauer of Tennessee Fabricating Co.for the purpose of founding his vision, a museum devoted to the art of metal craft, it originally housed Mr. Sauer's private collection which was later stolen. Mr.Sauer also helped found NOMMA the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association.

This museum is full of eye catching pieces and even more eye catching views of the Memphis area and Mississippi River from the top of the bluff. The demonstrations are very neat and the exhibits are well curated. The store is also full of great trinkets that support true artists, not just road-side "I was here" stuff. I'm excited to go back soon and see more!
