Graceland, Memphis

4.4
#1 of 208 in Museums in Tennessee
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.

  • I'm not an Elvis fan but I'm married to one. GET THE BEST TOUR with the personal tour guide. You move past the lines directly to all the neat things. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole tour - my husband LOVED it. It is something you NEED to do at least once! The new buildings have such neat exhibits!
  • We visited on Saturday February 29, 2020 and did the VIP Ultimate tour. Our tour guide was Meredith and she was amazing. Super polite, knowledgeable, accommodating and made the experience worth the spend. We tried to tip her $20 and she said she could not accept tips! That is crazy as she provided a service and did it exceptionally well. Thank you!
  • My husband took me here on November 1st for my 41st birthday! I'm a huge Elvis Presley fan so this was one of my best birthday presents EVER in my life! Im a true Floridian, so on this day, in Memphis, it was 26°. Boy o' Boy was this a nice change of weather for us! I've never seen snow or ice before in my life over everything like it was that day. This place is amazing and filled with Elvis & families' spirits.!. We ABSOLUTELY loved it here and will definitely go back again in our lifetime🎼🎹⛲ 100⭐'s
  • One of the best tours I’ve ever been on. We got VIP tickets and viewed the mansion, his records, clothes he wore on stage, his life in the army, his cars and so much more. Time spent was 4 hours. We probably could have taken more time and spent an ex hour or 2. Amazing experience. Elvis was a generous man and loved his family very much.
  • Fabulous trip! Can’t believe there is so much memorabilia. Highly recommend staying at the Guesthouse. Seeing Graceland at Christmas was beautiful. The house was wonderfully decorated. The staff friendly and knowledgeable. You should put this on your bucket list.
