4.2/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web
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.

  • From birth up to when the family moved from the area to Memphis. This museum can take about 2 hours to complete. You have the opportunity to walk through the house where he was born, the original chur...  read more »
  • We were on a coach trip and on route to Memphis we stopped here, we were never big Elvis fans but found it all, both Tupelo and Gracelands, to be fascinating, great for non fans, a must if you are a f...  read more »
  • We arrived before opening time, so I cannot comment on the inside of the buildings. However, you can still walk around the grounds for free and check out the buildings. If nothing else, stop by just t...  read more »
  • 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 mother and I enjoyed learning more about Elvis and seeing his birth home. However, sadly, the facility is poorly run. My mother and I walked up to the house with our tour guide leisurely smoking a cigarette, and she asked us if "we were in a hurry" gesturing with her cigarette. We felt that it was very unprofessional and just simply uncooth. We continued the tour to the church. The older lady running the church attraction was in the back completing a word search, and her cell phone rang during the video, and she ANSWERED it. The staff were very unprofessional and had minimal knowledge of Elvis' life. Elvis' birth home was neat to see, but the staff's unprofessional behavior was undesirable and rude to the guests and disrespectful to Elvis' existence. I hope they have a staff meeting soon.
  • He was not only a great artis but a kind human being who gave his whole. I grew up listening to his music which will always be imortalized.
  • Neat to see. Much smaller than I would have expected, although the rest of the museum looked nice. Everything was locked up and closed, which was disappointing. I thought the outhouse was funny, glad they put the Plexiglas over the door too :)
  • I LOVE anything ELVIS period! Been here 13 times & returning again soon. Definitely appreciate the tour guide allowing me to take pics behind the velvet ropes. Omg what an experience!! I LOVE ELVIS!!!
