Nice day out. No food places open, lots of exhibits closed. Bathrooms in some of the houses were closed. Think this was a bad time of the year to go there. But, never saw a panda in a zoo before.

This is one of the few nice places in Memphis to go as a single , couple or entire family ! Plenty of parking. A few places to eat. And a lot of animals to see.
