Graceland, Memphis

4.3
Once Elvis Presley's private home--and the place he died in 1977 at age 42--Graceland now is a museum dedicated to the famous entertainer. The mansion sits on a large estate that opened to the public in 1982. Tour the 23-room house to see its opulent and often tacky decor, providing insight into the mind of one of the world's most beloved music icons. To suit his unusual tastes, Presley extensively modified the estate, most notably adding a wrought-iron gate shaped like a book of sheet music. Just a year before his death the singer converted one of the rooms into a recording studio, where he worked on his final two albums.

  • So, as an Elvis fan it’s bound to be a place to visit when in Memphis. This was firmly on our itinerary as part of a bigger trip in the Southern USA. We drove here from downtown, rather than take the ...  more »
  • This was our second trip to Graceland, as we took my mother-in-law to the #1 place on her bucket list, being the huge Elvis fan. The first time we visited was in 2009, and Elvis' Memphis (as they call...  more »
  • I went here only because if you’re in Memphis, you have to go. I was born long after Elvis died so I have no attachment to him but I can appreciate the contribution he made to music and history in gen...  more »

  • This was so much better than we even imagined! My daughter and I planned this trip for 8 months, and we were not disappointed! We did the ultimate VIP tour, and had an amazing tour guide named Brian, who left no question unanswered. The museums were impressive, and it was so cool to hear personal stories about him. He was an amazing guy, in addition to being the icon that he was! As part of the VIP tour, you also get to hold a ring that he wore...We thought that was a pretty fun touch.
  • I brought my dad here for his retirement gift. He has loved Elvis his entire life, so this place was like his own personal Disneyland. The house and the grounds were beautiful. So much more than I expected. I purchased the VIP tickets thinking it would be more enjoyable for him but we just felt rushed through the tour. Overall great experience. Staff was nice and helpful.
  • Had a great time!! Sound was Excellent, Comfortable Temperature, Seats interlocking and comfortable,Nice clean restroom, Parking was $10.00, safe and secure parking lot, several shops and a fun Soda/Candy Shoppe. The staff were all very kind and helpful. Take advantage of your opportunity to visit. We enjoyed the Semi Finals Elvis Concert..
  • Brand new beautiful hotel. The tour of the mansion was great. Went to Beale street ( free shuttle from hotel) to eat and nightlife. 5 star trip. And you really don’t have to be an Elvis fan. But it helps 😁
  • Time capsule … worth doing at least once in your life. You get to get close to the actual living space of Elvis and his family -- closer than you might expect. It is great that they let strangers tromp through living room, kitchen, jungle room, etc. It likely will be smaller than you expect, but it is authentic and frozen in time. What keeps it from getting five stars is that now they nickel and dime you … other things you'd like to see are a separate/extra fee, when they probably would do better financially to charge everyone a little more and let us see it all.
