Graceland, Memphis

Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Take a look at our Memphis vacation planner to schedule your visit to Graceland and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Having put off for 20 years it was in the top 3 places I have gone. do your research on Elvis watch some of his you tube videos in order to understand this one of a kind person who changed America since he first came into the spotlight. a true rags to riches story. sad I was 17 when he died and did not appreciate his talents till in my 50s I have been many places this place touched me because its real not fiction. its a must see on any bucket list went a second time to the new facility to be honest I liked to older version because it felt like Elvis home you get to see more in the new place but the feel has changed
  • Loved it. We did the Elvis Experience & Airplanes tour on a Tuesday afternoon in April and there was hardly anyone at all. Only about 10 people on the tour. We had enough time to really get a feel of how Elvis lived here. Amazing place. Like taking a step back in time. Plus the new complex housing various exhibits such as his beautiful cars was great. Ticket is very expensive though...
  • Always in my mind! Yes, if you are Elvis's fans then you should definitely visit Graceland. Elvis first home from his first wages as a singer. When I was there, I felt like Elvis is around the house. His former wife did a good work even if we all know she was already divorced to Elvis, therefore, His daughter should be the main heritage. Will put more pics later on but for now - hope you enjoy his costumes. :)
  • It's so nostalgic and we'll done. I really enjoyed the entertainment complex. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Using iPad technology to go on the self-guided tour is brilliant. You could have heard a pin drop in the meditation garden.
  • You may not like Elvis, or anything to do with him, but if you pass up the chance to visit Graceland once in your life, you'll regret it. Don't get unnerved by the smallish size of the "mansion", as there's lots to see on the property. The house itself is immaculate, and a real step into The Time Tunnel. The yard in back is stunning, with the greenest grass and the bluest pool and the whitest masonry and the reddest roses you'll find in any one place. When you walk off the property, you'll know you've seen something you'll remember for the rest of your life.
