This was a neat place to visit. The grounds are very well maintained. We did not go inside the museum, but only walked around outside. The signs and plaques are interesting to read and the house and church were neat to see.

This is a really well presented and tasteful tribute to Elvis. The layout is well thought out and leads you through a presentation of Elvis's early life at an easy pace. All of the exhibits are well maintained and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful. If you're in Tupelo how can you miss this? A great place and highly recommended.

I visited the Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum 15 years ago when I was in high school. Back then it was just the original homestead; I got a quick pic on the front porch and that was it. Boy was I pleasantly surprised to go back this week. They have added SO MUCH to this residential street in Tupelo. If... More

Humbling to see where Elvis came from and being in the little church gives you a greater understanding of his love of gospel music. His really is a rags to riches story but he never forgot his roots and it's what made him so special. Elvis fans cannot afford to miss it...

Very pretty facility and enjoyed seeing the house, church & outhouse (really?). However the only posted entrance fee was too high. Surprised to find different prices for seniors posted on their website later.

It was very moving to see the humble begins of a man who became an icon within the landscape of American culture. This site does an excellent job of actually tell the story of the Presley family in the early years during their time spent in Tupelo. The museum is filled with multiple family treasures that are all a must... More

Living 45 miles away it was a must do. The house is understated as is Graceland. Easy to get to and easy to visit. Not crowded.

From such humble beginnings sprang musical genius! Not the biggest Elvis fan really, but you gotta give him props. Who doesn't wanna see this??

If you are an Elvis fan, then this is a must see! The lifelike church service is an amazing experience that you won't soon forget. The admission not mentioned on the website and is pricey at $16.00, so be prepared. All in all it was a great experience.
