Definitely worth seeing in Tupelo Mississippi! Very interesting to learn the beginnings of Elvis Presley. Interesting to know that it kind of all started here in Tupelo Mississippi

If you are an Elvis fan like my wife then this is a must. The museum was less than I expected, but the old church and house were pretty cool.

I appreciate the role Elvis played in music and our culture, but I am not a die hard fan. I visited this center because of the reasons cited above, but found I was disappointed that the center seemed to be a glorified gift shop (and not a good one at that). I did not take away as much from this... More

Although I was never a diehard fan of Elvis, the EP Centre was a very moving memorial to a very talented singer. Of particular note were the accounts by childhood friends inscribed on the Story Wall and the Walk of Life, a walkway circling EP's humble birthplace, with dated stone blocks that inform visitors of his early years.

Quiet Grounds that surround the Elvis Center include the Elvis Memorial Chapel and an old church building that is said to be the first church Elvis went to as a youth and learned to play the guitar. The old church was moved to this location and has undergone significant repairs to place in a nearly original state. This building has... More

Loved a journey back in time to see how such a legend started from such humble beginnings. What we take for granted now in modern communications did not apply in Elvis' early days. Still find it amazing that Elvis grew up in such a small town with little contact with bigger world outside Tupelo and little awareness of music trends... More
