Made a quick stop while passing through. The staff were all extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I watched the documentary about Elvis' early life. Not a must see. It's actually just scenes from his childhood reenacted by actors. I didn't buy entrance to the church or museum, just the house. Worth a visit if you're a fan!

We stopped here on our way back home from Elvis Week 2014. I'm very glad that we did! How awesome is it so see the house and church Elvis grew up at?! We didn't have time to take the tour of it but I plan on returning at some point this year to do so. Everyone in the gift shop... More

Visited after closing, but impressed with what could be seen from the outside. Take time to read the " billboards" on the outside, interesting insight into his life thru the eyes of his friends.

Anyone in the Tupelo, MS, area should include this on the "must see" list. You might like to allow up to 4 hours to enjoy all the facilities and birthplace of Elvis Presley.

Visited in December, was moving to see where it all started, can only imagine what life would've been like back then, loved the old church and the service that is put on, great insight, visit if you get a chance.

A nice but simple 2 rooms house. The tour is done in aprox. 10 minutes but then you can go shopping for some nice things.

One can almost feel his presents. Just take it all in and get lost in the moments. There is a huge amount of history to absorb, and one can do it. Take your time. Sitting on the porch of the old cabin is a moving experience. One can imagine the history that went on under our feet and hands. This... More

Drove off the beaten path to take my 79 year old mother to see where Elvis was born. Couldn't take a picture of the front of the house because of two employees taking a smoke break on the front porch. One was swinging in the swing. Two people from Europe gave up and just headed for their car. One of... More

We debated about visiting here, but we were glad we did. It is mostly a collection owned by one individual, but it was fine, even if you aren't an Elvis fan. His two room home was probably the highlight for me. The church where he attended when he was very young was on the grounds. They also offered senior discounts.

It is about 1:40 min drive from Memphis, give or take depending on the traffic and where you are in town. We went there on Christmas Day, and it was a nice ride. The museum itself was closed but I don’t know how much there is to see inside if you are not a die-hard Elvis fan. The place is... More
