I was brought up listening to Elvis so as we where driving from Nashville to Memphis thought we would stop on way. It is a well laid out site and a shock to see how small his house was. We arrived to late to see the chapel and hall but the gardens and surroundings are beautiful. There is a guide... More

We headed to Tupelo the day after being at Graceland's The restored house is great couldn't believe how tiny it was! The layout of the timeline was great . The Chapel where he went was cute.We took a walk to Jonnie's drive in and sat in the same booth Elvis sat in and ate a Elvis burger.

We headed out to Tupelo after Memphis. The restored house is great! Literally took a couple minutes. The Chapel was great and peaceful. The Church video was a cool idea but boring. We paid the $15 and when all is said and done it was worth it.

Very neat to see Elvis birthplace in the actual little house he was born in. There is a very neat timeline you can see as well as some great stories from his childhood. I like the 13 yr old Elvis statue with him carrying his guitar. His family moved to Memphis when he was about 13. Also way cool is... More

We had a great time visiting the birthplace and museum! It was a nice stop as we traveled but we wish we would have visited downtown and spent a little more time in Tupelo.

Didn't take the tour, but you can walk around the outside of the house and a small garden and area where Elvis' childhood friends tell stories about him. Glad we stopped here.

I liked the church exhibit best, perhaps because it brought back childhood memories. The house is ultra small, and the furnishings are period correct, but not authentic, as the family sold their possessions when they moved. The museum has an eclectic collection of Elvis memorabilia, but quite a bit of it came from one source. As a museum, there was... More

The buildings are beautifully restored and the new buildings are lovely. Just outstanding video presentations. The docents are knowledgeable and tell their stories well. It make a young Elvis and his friends and family come alive. It made us fall in love with the man, not just the music. Thank you to the docents and those who made this such... More

It was interesting seeing Elvis' first house and the church he attended as a boy. There was also a short film which was interesting. I felt the price was too high for a walk through a two-room house but I guess if you're a true Elvis fan, you don't mind paying.

This museum/site is very well done, worth the visit. Expected it to be a 15-minute visit, and ended up spending a couple of hours. There is the home Elvis was born in, the church he attended (which has a great surround video), a museum, movie, gift shop, and gardens. The cherry on top is the Elvis videos playing in the... More
