I've visited the Elvis Presley Center twice and enjoyed both visits. For me, it illustrates the American Dream and the notion that greatness can come from very humble beginnings.

I have had the great pleasure of seeing and being here 2 times this year. Everything done here is excellent, the people really show the southern hospitality. Words cannot describe a perfect place such as this. I wanted to move there.

Though we are not great Elvis Presley fans, we spent over two and one-half hours at the museum. We enjoyed visiting Elvis's two room birthplace and church, as well as the museum. Visitors should definitely plan to see the two movies in the museum and church. The two docents we met in the house and church were enthusiastic and knowledgeable.... More

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).
