The museum itself and the short movie there is a charge. You can see his birthplace church and they are for free as long as you don't go inside. I found out the most interesting information from the museum staff that was sitting inside his actual house. She was very knowledgeable and friendly! It wasn't busy on a Wednesday so... More

My wife and I were impressed with how well and tasteful the site was done. The grounds were neat and the wall with comments by friends that knew him was fun to read. The time line appeared to be incomplete. Would have been nice to have had more.

We stopped on our way to Little Rock. It was very close to the interstate exit, so we didn't have to go too far off the beaten path. We looked around, and the got to see the house Elvis was born in, the church he attended, and even a movie about him for free. It does cost a little if... More

Nice little museum and you get to tour the house that Elvis was born in. The church that Elvis attended as a child was moved to this location and you can tour that too.

Pleasantly surprised at the way this attraction is presented. Seeing the house where Elvis was born in its original location and the church where Elvis went as a child that has been moved to the site was a neat experience. The grounds are nicely landscaped and overall it generally makes you wonder if Elvis might have been happier and still... More

On our way to Memphis we stopped at the Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum and we are glad that we did. We are no Elvis fans, nor did we know much about Elvis as a human being. The museum complex was calm and tranquil with just a few visitors at the time of our visit in early July. Seeing Elvis's... More

Our party of 5 seniors (2 American, 3 British) stopped here on our recent roadtrip through the Southern States. We visited on a weekday morning in May. We were surprised to see that the park itself was in a very residential area of Tupelo. Kids were waiting for a schoolbus on an opposite corner. The grounds themselves are meticulously maintained,...

When you see how Elvis started and think about how things ended up, you gotta appreciate what's possible.

The museum was closed, but walked around the grounds. A nice layout, interesting testimonies from his friends. Worth checking out.
