Make sure to check times of the exhibits prior to going. The church closes an hour and a half prior to the museum and house. The church presentation lasts approximately twenty minutes, the house tour takes fifteen minutes, and depending on you, the museum could take up to an hour. It was great to be able to have a photo...

It was so great to see the house he was born in and to realize what humble beginnings he had. We only walked around the gift shop and outdoor exhibits...we were on our way home from Memphis/Graceland. You can just buy a ticket to see the house which is what we did. Great part of Rock n Roll history!

This is a MUST see! I especially LOVED the church service in Elvis' old church which is also onsite.

If you have been to Graceland and are more than a casual fan of Elvis Presley, you should come here too. It shows you what humble beginnings Elvis was born into. The high point for me was the house, only 2 rooms but furnished in period style and hosted engagingly by Nina who will chat, tell anecdotes and give opinions... More

While not a dedicated fans we found this site extremely enjoyable. We are old enough the remember much of Elvis' career, but, the staff was very knowledgable and provided a very nice synopsis on his life and continuing connection to Tupelo. The lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Talking with her was very enjoyable.

Even if you're not an Elvis "fan", this is a cool place to visit simply for the historical value alone. It was quite pricey in my opinion, but I don't regret going there. Unfortunately, the church was closed due to the filming of a movie at the time, but we did the museum, the movie, and the house. Should've received... More

A very well organised museum area including the house, Church, and museum. Very helpful staff and a very enjoyable and interesting visit. Understated, quiet and relaxing.

Elvis Presley Birthplace located 306 Elvis Presley Dr., Tupelo, MS. Telephone: 662-841-1245. You have to buy tickets for each individual part (museum, home, church). You can pick and choose which places you want to see, but I recommend that you do all three. The gift shop is just ok and sort of expensive. Restrooms are nice and there is a... More

Although we are not Elvis fans, we spent an hour here and learned a lot about him, his humble beginings and his generosity. Well worth a visit if you like Elvis, and a lot to see..... Don't miss it...
