Just what I imagined

Hard to find not well signposted, we got there as everyone leaving but really enjoyed. Nice to see where Elvis started his life and we had already been to Graceland.

We visited on a pretty Sunday afternoon while driving from a Memphis/Tunica visit back home to Nashville. We paid for the museum, the church, and the house tours and thought it all very interesting and worth the cost. The people working there were very friendly, and overall Tupelo was a fun stop! You could definitely just visit the outside areas... More

Won't take you too long to go through. Interesting presentations in all the buildings. The movie in the old church building was esepcially innovative. Two kids liked it, even if they didn't know who heck Elvis was!

What a lovely well kept birthplace! We had visited Graceland in Memphis and thought we would visit Tupelo on the way to Nashville as part of our holiday. This is a lovely, well preserved piece of history for anyone to visit, and a major attraction for an Elvis fan! It's only small so don't expect a huge exhibition. It's what... More

We visited the birthplace, church, and museum on a lovely sunny day. This was helpful. The home is tiny and although interesting, the "tour" was short and sweet... 15 minutes only because the docent knew a few stories. But the information given outside in the concrete and the church service film rounded out the experience to about an hour well... More

Beautifully landscaped. Quiet and interesting. Did not pay to gain access into the museum, however, purchased items at the gift shop. Short and very enjoyable.

It was wonderful seeing Elvis's birthplace! The house was furnished from things of the time period! It is definitely a must-do!

I missed the road (construction had the sign down, going out of town, found the sign returning to town!!) and found myself at the lake. I am not an Elvis swooner however I love music, and music related. I have more respect for him now knowing what I learned here about the person he was growing up. Gift shop was... More

Unless you are a real serious Elvis fan, or just want to hear and read interesting facts about Elvis and his early days, pass up the cost and just walk around for free. I'm not a fan but was interested in seeing the house, the chapel and the area, especially after reading what was offered for the cost. It was... More
