This was my second visit to Elvis' childhood home. Wow have they added a lot. The setting is now very parklike and includes a Chapel and theater. The home itself now has a surrounding walkway with stones noting specific events in Elvis' life. The gift shop here is especially good with lots to choose from and reasonable prices. Don't miss...

Living near Tupelo most my life we never thought much about his home being that big of a deal but when I visited there after I grew up more people would come to see it than before. Over time it has become more commercialized and the grounds have improved. It is a nice place to visit and kids can run... More

We were traveling through Tupelo and wanted to stop by Elvis' birthplace. It was very enjoyable. The museum and water area made it worthwhile. While the house was interesting to see, it is simply a two room home. The museum and gift shop made this landmark interesting. It is a great way to spend a couple of hours while traveling.

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
