Historic Site Specialty Museum
Experience what early life was like for rock-and-roll legend Elvis Presley, and see firsthand how his childhood influenced his musical genius at Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum. Here, you can walk through the small house where "The King" was born and lived until he was 13, when his family moved to Memphis in search of a better life. You can also go inside the Assembly of God church where the Presley family worshipped often and where Elvis first encountered gospel music. This genre appeared within many of his famous songs later in his career. The museum itself displays a variety of Elvis memorabilia, such as jumpsuits that he wore during performances. Check out the gift shop and purchase some exclusive Elvis souvenirs that are only available here.

  • Very neat to see Elvis birthplace. The cost to see inside the house and museum was reasonable. Takes probably an hour or 2 if you really want to see everything. It was a nice peaceful place. Very pret...  more »

  • Loved the experience. Great seeing his birth house and imagining him running around as a toddler. The church event was very cool. It made you feel like you was part of the congregation. It was a bit dissapointing not to be able to take pictures in the museum.
  • On my recent road trip from Memphis, TN, to Columbus, MS, I didn't expect to stop here and pay a visit to Elvis's hometown, but boy, am I glad I did. Seeing the home in which he was raised was a humbling experience; seeing his church was like going back in time. The museum of artifacts from his life was unlike anything else you will find anywhere. I am so glad I got a chance to see this place and will certainly come back. Whether you're a devout fan of the King or, like me, not as familiar with his life and times, you will appreciate what this place has to offer and who knows? You might even learn something new!
  • This is the place to go if you are an Elvis fan. However, this year they have upgraded the visitor centre. The old one was an interesting group of small buildings, and the new one is like a concrete Disney building. Not good. Graceland itself is beautiful and very moving.
  • Stopped here in our way from Birmingham to Memphis. We didn't pay for the tour but walked around the grounds . There is no RV parking but the lot was fairly empty so there was plenty of room for our rig. Beautiful grounds.
  • Nice destination to visit. Hours are a bit confusung... we arrived on a Sunday at 11am, but it didn't open until 1pm 😢. We entertained ourselves with the outside exhibits, but did not get to enjoy the inside ones.
