A must for Elvis fans, everyone else take it or leave it. This attraction is OK but $16 is a bit much for a small museum, a look inside his old house and church. They do have nice restrooms however. If you are planning to visit this attraction and are going to Graceland first buy your tickets at Graceland for... More

Feel free to budget about 5 minutes for this site. The museum is larger than the house. It is tucked away on the west side of the highway.

We really enjoyed seeing Elvis' Birthplace for the second time. They have built up a shop and a few more things since our last visit many years ago. We like seeing the car that Vernon and the family to Memphis. I wouldn't drive a long way to see if but if you are in the area or near the area... More

TBH I'm not a massive Elvis fan, though ive certainly warmed to him more after this trip so we visited because We appreciated his massive influence on popular music and wanted to know what influenced and drove the King himself - This museum on the site of where he spent his formative years does just that. Hearing about his early... More

Traveling on an "Elvis" pilgrimage for my Mom's 65th birthday I found this to be a great start and a very nice museum complex. Thinking we would just do a drive by . . . I was surprised by how interesting this place was. It comprises his 2-room house that he lived in until he was 3 and they have... More

My husband and I visited Tupelo to see Elvis Presley's birthplace, a couple days before we visited Graceland in Memphis. It is very well maintained and interesting. The small two room house where Elvis was born is located on the property as well as the small Assembly of God church he attended as a child with his parents. There is... More

The birth place of Elvis is brilliant. We spent over 2 hours here. Excellent museum. The family tree was interesting. There is a cinema with a short film depicting Elvis's early life. There is also the church that Elvis attended and you can go inside the house where Elvis was born. There is also a souvenir shop.

For an Elvis fan this is a must see. Seeing where your idol grew up and how humble his early life was is an eye opener. We first visited Elvis’ birthplace back in 2000 and were fascinated to see how commercialised this place has grown in the 14 years since. Unfortunately for us we felt that the naturalness of this...

Elvis is a cultural icon, and the house he was born in is interesting. And the few actual Elvis items of Elvis from his Tupelo childhood in the museum are interesting. Other than that, the museum and grounds depend a bit too much on items from the collection of an Elvis fan and from items the era, not actually from... More
