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.

  • Other members of our party were bigger Elvis fans than me, hence the trip. The park is split in two, the more interesting part for me being the house and garden. The house was much smaller than I expe...  read more »
  • My husband and I decided to come here for a weekend for our 1st Anniversary. We got the V.I.P pass for the Graceland tour. It was nice to get to go straight to the front of the line and not have to wa...  read more »
  • My guy and I visited on the Platinum Tour, which was plenty. He's a moderate Elvis fan, and I was amazed at how much he was into the entire experience and exhibits. I loved it. The car museum and airp...  read more »
  • We just stopped in for a quick peek a boo.. Every Staff member we came in contact with were amazing. Very nice to talk to and get information. The gift shop is full of Elvis at reasonable prices. Going back soon will give full review as I take the full tour. :)
  • Wonderful museum, so cool to see a peek into Elvis' life. The audio tour was very informative, and even though you can't visit the whole home it's still awesome! Seeing all of his gold and platinum records, stage outfits, and movie memorabilia is very cool. Also, you can go into his private jets with the upgraded jet tour, I thought it was totally worth it. Made me love Elvis even more.
  • Very cool place even for those who are not big Elvis fans. I was converted after learning the backstory of Elvis which this tour does a wonderful job of capturing the man behind the fame. In combination with the sun studios tour it's a great in depth look at the rise to fame and life after. If you have the time and money it is worth a visit.
  • My wife and I toured Graceland, not because we are Hugh Elvis fans, but because we just happened to be in Memphis on our way back from Florida. We both grew up on Elvis music and movies, but that was many years ago. After touring Graceland, our admiration for "The King" has been renewed. Elvis was much more than a singer. He was a pretty good actor and an outstanding son and citizen. Long live The King.
  • Not a big Elvis fan....wife is . Took her to Nashville/Memphis for 25th anniversary. I enjoyed the whole tour... Did the VIP etc.. Recommend. Not much more perks but a couple. The man has a great place...loved the 60/70's decor. Wish we could of done upstairs though. All rooms roped off...I know why but would of been great to enter. Big plane cool stuff....jet .... Not so much ... No entry. Maybe a cheap DVD at the and would of been nice also for the VIP tours. But all in all a good experience and my wife loved it !!!!
