We very much enjoyed our visit! I think we spent about 3 hours here during our visit. We did everything in the tour!

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).

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.

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
