  • It's not much of a house, but we expected that. They've gone to a great deal of trouble to make it a nice place.  more »
  • Very nice. Grand-daughter likes Elvis, so in our swing through the South, we stopped here for her. Very pleasant visit. The weather was beautiful that day and we spent a couple of hours touring. My fa...  more »
  • Elvis ' birthplace is a very small house with only two rooms. When we visited the place sat there a lady in one room and told various anecdotes. Beside the House is a small museum, which was surprisingly good. It had many exciting effects and stories about Elvis. All in all, the visit was very satisfactory; even if we had on a long drive from Memphis.

  • 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. 🎼🎶🎸🎤♩🎵💙
  • 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.
