This visit was something of a pilgrimage for us coming from England, and so it was quite emotional to actually be in the place where Elvis started his life. The museum and visitor centre was nicely presented and we were not disappointed.

A must for any Elvis fan. Very well done. A little pricey though. Closes at 5 so plan accordingly. Highway we'll marked and easy to find.

was there back in 2007, his birth place is small and his home in Memphis is small. I thought being the King of R N R His home would be larger then life. we didn't do the tour, we rolled into Tupelo early in the morning, we sat on the porch swing! Awesome!!!

Interesting insight into Elvis's humbling beginnings. Was pleasantly surprised there was more to see there than I'd imagined. The home Elvis lived in as well as a chapel and an informative museum. Worth a visit.

You will come away with an added feeling of admiration and appreciation for Elvis. We learned about his childhood and the rawness of his rearing. The very home he lived in and the church where he worshiped are part of the buildings. Little know facts abound and you won't be disappointed in the presentation! Go and enjoy the devotion of...

This is just another hour & a half drive down the highway. I suggest seeing both in the same day, as I did. Elvis was born in this two-room shotgun built by his father, grandfather, & uncle. It is in the same location as it was built, although the neighboring houses are gone. Instead, there's a lovely interpretive park, museum,... More

If you are a diehard Elvis fan, you have to come here! I am more of a casual fan----he died before I was born, but I do enjoy his music. There is a museum, chapel and the actual home where he was born that you can tour for a $16 fee. I wasn't THAT interested and walked around outside. Still... More

You can see everything in less than two hours. There is a 30 minute video representing the church he went to as a boy. The house he was born in takes less than five minutes as there are two rooms and only 450 square feet of space. The museum is small but nicely done. And then there is a gift... More

We really enjoyed the house visit, but our favorite was the church experience. A great surround sound old time religion experience. The museum was good too.
