Worth a look

We stopped by on our way to Clarksdale. Very small museum but well presented and interesting. Doesn't take long to see it all but worth a stop.

Birthplace house is probably the high point. Ok, with a woman there to tell you about it. They have an old church that they show about a 15 minute video that features actors playing church scenes and music. Very poor quality sound. Inside museum has a few artifacts....very few actual ones. Overall, this one is no more than average and... More

Little attraction growing in scope. Started with help from Elvis himself. Gift shop can be visited for free. From there single event or combination tickets can be bought to see movie, house, chapel. Plenty of photo ops on the grounds without admission fees. Caretakers are adding a stage pavilion in the rear, on a ridge where Elvis was said to... More

Great Place, Great People. The museum staff heard my partner saying it was my birthday and they presented me with a 'Goody' bag on my way out. I am 60 and it made my day!

If you're ever near Tupelo, driving by and just staring at that little house takes you back in time. They do offer tours and there is a small museum on property, but wasn't really interested in that. Take 5 minutes and go look.

........and even for those who are not fans of The King. If nothing else, it demonstrates what one can accomplish in this country. Apart from the birthplace house itself, the museum now includes the First Assembly Of God Church building which E attended growing up. Understand now that I'm taking about the ENTIRE building. There is a neat video about... More

Elvis' house is small. Very small. If you make a long trip just to see this attraction, you may be disappointed. There is also a museum, but be aware it is fairly pricey for what you are going to see.

The house is super super tiny; it is shot gun house. I would be very upset if I came to Tupelo just to see this tiny little house.

The last time I was here there was no museum, but it was free. Now, it is a complex and it is pretty expensive to see it all. We chose to only see the house and it was worth it. The kids were amazed to see how tiny the house was. I asked and was told that the wall paper... More
