MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - A huge expansion is underway at a popular Memphis museum, with hopes of bringing in a whole new crowd.

The Imperial Retreat Gallery is currently under construction at the Belz Museum of Asian and Judiac Art.

Never seen before pieces will be displayed in the gallery reflecting imperial private quarters; the most notable of the new pieces is an antique Chinese rosewood bed.

The museum's director, Belinda Fish, hopes the more casual exhibit will bring in a younger group of guests.

"A lot of our existing exhibits are more formal, and they show you the more beautiful art but in a more formal setting," she said. "The retreat gallery is going to provide people with a little less informal setting and hopefully give people an understanding of what a private retreat could look like for somebody."

The exhibit is expected to open August 15th.
