Historic Site
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.

  • Didn't pay the huge fee for the museum as we'd been to Graceland. There was plenty to see and read on the site though. Kids liked playing outside and around the little house.  more »
  • If nostalgia is your thing then you won't be disappointed with this hidden gem. You'll feel like you're experiencing his Childhood.  more »
  • Can't say that this was anything special. Nice setting etc but not a great lot to see. We did this as part of a trip and it was OK but I would not want to make a special journey to get here.  more »

  • 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.
  • We (seniors and 16 yr old grandson) enjoyed this nice museum and grounds. Pleasant break from road trip west. Refreshing as it does not indulge in information overload.
  • Very pretty! Didn't pay for the museum but everything you can see outside was awesome. Go to the lake/fountain at the back!
  • It was nice seeing where and how Elvis grew up. There are many comments posted from friends and family of Elvis. A very relaxing and beautiful place to visit. Most of it is free. The museum is a bit pricy and really nothing that special in it for the price plus the lady running it at the time was not very friendly unlike the lady giving the tour of Elvis's house she was very nice and informative. You get to see and experience what made Elvis not only a great musician but person as well.
