  • This is a lovely quiet place where you can reflect on the early life of Elvis. We were given a great tour, and shown a film, by local lady guides. The visitor centre is fairly new with the inevitable ...  more »
  • Tucked away in a normal neighborhood, this museum has been created with thought and creativity. Lots of relics of the past and Elvis memorabilia. Very nice grounds and park.  more »
  • We read the tours didn't start until 1 and we had to be on the road so we just walked around the outside. We wanted to see where Elvis was born and then leave. Next we will have to go back to Gracelan...  more »

  • I stopped by on my way through Tupelo a I'm glad I got to experience where this legend was born. I grew up listening to Elvis and watching his movies with my mom. My mother would've been upset with me if she knew I was in Tupelo and didn't stop by to see this historical place. Long live the King. πŸŽΌπŸŽΆπŸŽΈπŸŽ€β™©πŸŽ΅πŸ’™
  • Staff here are super friendly, and they give a fun, informative tour. Loved seeing this tourist attraction. Great part of our national history.
  • Wonderful exhibit and the staff were amazing! I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and working miracles. Amazing place with a large gift shop. Definitely worth the stop!
  • My husband called in an hour in advance to check on pricings and whether or not they had a card machine. They let him know that they did and even though they closed at 5pm we could still walk the grounds. Once we got there, they would only accept cash. They allowed us to walk through the gift shop which was quite large and had a hallway of facts. I'd say they are milking his memory for the prices they were asking for some of their memorabilia. A small keychain was merely 15 dollars! Its a sad sight to see greed has overcome yet another landmark. It is a nice place to walk around. Due to the weather we weren't able to walk around on the grounds but maybe next time we are on our way through we can see more.
  • I have been brought to this place for so many school field trips, I have lost count or care. However, for a town that loves their King, this place has been well taken care of and it's a beautiful tribute to someone who had, and still has, such an influence on music.
