Graceland, Memphis

(4.4/5 based on 12,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I loved the tour: the interactive tour was cool, though there is a subtle beauty in having a physical guide. But I hated the waiting area. They had some kind of emergency so all of the times got pushed back, which was totally out of their control. But when it's 100 degrees outside and you have disabled people and the elderly, who can't be out in the heat, you need to have seating areas with AC. I could go into the shops, but still there was no place for me to sit except the ground, and most of that was filled up as well. As a disabled person, I can't stand for long periods of time or be in the heat, it's also increasingly difficult for me to sit with nothing behind me. I was miserable until the actual tour. Which reminds me, you need to have wheelchairs for the line as well. I had to sit outside of the line until my family was ready for the picture, then sit back down and wait until the bus boarded so I could get on. It would be much easier if I could have a wheelchair to go through the line in. It is nice that there are wheelchairs you can use during the tour, though.
  • As a musician I really enjoyed this place. It was a memorable trip through Elvis Presley's home. I enjoyed the audio tour and the jungle room! They wouldn't allow us to go upstairs😞. Someone said it's probably because he's still living up there😆. The prices are a little high but you got to expect that for a memorable souvenir from such an iconic place. Every musician should visit the home of the king of Rockin' roll!
  • Well worth the tour! Not a super crazy Elvis fan before I went, but I was blown away. The audio tour with the iPads is a great idea as well! I was a little skeptical at first, but it's well worth the price and time. I highly suggest visiting Graceland!
  • I wasn't really an Elvis fan but have always wanted to go here. I have been twice now with my wife, then again with my dad and brother. Awesome experience to see a legends home. It is pricey but I found it worth it. The record hall is amazing and probably my favorite room.
  • 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.
