We toured Elvis' birthplace, a small 2 room home, church, chapel, and visitor center museum with a video of young Elvis before going to Graceland. Instead of getting a rifle or bike for Christmas, his mother gave Elvis a guitar from the local hardware, which he learned to play and sang to his friends, whose entertaining comments are shown on...

We stopped in Tupelo to get fuel and a gentleman asked me if we were going to visit Elvis' birthplace just down the street. We were ahead of schedule so figured why not. You really need to LOVE Elvis for this to be worthwhile. I am not a huge fan, but it was interesting especially in the cabin his family... More

We have been here before and at that time we saw the museum too and enjoyed it all. For this trip, we were introducing our 13 year old granddaughter to Elvis. We were going to Graceland the next day and I wanted her to see where he begin. We bought the tickets just for the house. It really is a... More

If you are an Elvis fan, his complete life story is a must - not just the music, fame & fortune. There could not be a bigger contrast between Tupelo & Graceland. The two room house where Elvis & his twin were born is a poignant reminder of his humble beginnings. The original church, attended by the family was moved... More

Interesting museum. Watched a documentary about Elvis childhood. Then we visited the birthplace. A small shotgun house, where Elvis lived until his 13th Year. Beside the birthplace, you can visit the Church Elvis went to every Sunday until his 13th Year. The Church was moved here from its original position.

Interesting info about Elvis early life. I love historical trips. A must see if you like music. I think the prices are a bit high for the house viewing considering its only 2 rooms but still I enjoyed it

Glad we showed up early. The trip planner did not call or plan to far ahead. We showed up before the place offically opened on sunday. After just browsing the grounds with the other people that showed up before opening. We picked into the door of the theater and museum to read the LED screen on the wall for prices,... More

As you enter the grounds, you will be greeted by an old 1939 Plymouth like the one the family drove to Memphis when Elvis was 13. Be sure to visit the little white house where Elvis and his twin were born on Aug. 8, 1935. You are welcome to take photos inside the house as well as outside. It will... More

If you go to Graceland, you will hear the story of the rise to fame and those years where he was famous. This is something entirely different. This shows a very humble beginning and really shows that childhood, which was great. This seemed to me to be a much more honest portrayal that made me like this particular artist even... More
