Free things to do in Memphis TN, including attractions, music, events and free museum days. Never run out of things to do with our list of free stuff.
We’ve done most of these as a family so I want to share this information for anyone who visits the site looking for the Memphis Hi-Lites. Use the Source Link to visit the page to see information like this and more:
149 Union Ave.
Every day at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., pomp and circumstance takes on new meaning in the grand lobby of the Peabody Hotel. This is when the great Peabody Ducks, five North American Mallards, arrive and leave the hotel fountain, a grand procession complete with red carpet, official introduction and visiting paparazzi. The Peabody Duck March is completely free and open to all.
National Civil Rights Museum
450 Mulberry St.
Housed in the historic Lorraine Motel, the National Civil Rights Museum is an intense, immersive tour through the civil rights struggle, from the early days of slavery to the museum’s moving conclusion. Tennessee residents can visit the museum for free on Mondays from 3 p.m. until closing.
South Main Trolley Nights
South Main Historic District
The last Friday of each month, Memphis’ South Main Arts District hosts an evening of art and music. Shops, restaurants and art galleries in the area open their doors to Memphians and visitors (tip: get there early for adult beverages and a few snacks). Hop aboard the trolley for free rides from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., rain or shine.
