Tupelo is the friendliest southern town you will ever find! The people there are all so kind and welcoming to their visitors. The Birthplace, where Elvis was born, is very very special to Elvis fans, but even if you are not an Elvis fan (I can't imagine anyone not being an Elvis fan though) just going there to see where...

I have visited before but had not gone through the museum part with an admission fee, which was not large but chocked-full of memorabilia. Very glad I went through it. The grounds, house, old church and chapel are all great. Be sure to watch the free movie in the main building.

Had some time to kill, so made the trek from Memphis to Tupelo. Decent attraction, but quite small - interesting 1/2 hour film clip, small museum and the actual shack where the King was born. Probably not worth the drive from Memphis unless you're a true pilgrim, but an interesting diversion just the same. Friendly, helpful staff tell the Elvis... More

We visited recently and walked around the grounds. We were early and the museum had not yet opened. The statue and information placed around were very interesting. It also made for a nice stroll around. Once opened we had a look around the comparatively expanse gift shop, we decided not to go to the house after having visiting it on... More

A must see for true Elvis Fans and worth the stop. You can see the small home he was raised in plus the church he attended. See the video of his youth in the visitor's center before venturing out to the grounds.

All my kids and the entire family enjoyed seeing the meager beginnings where Elvis was born. I would suggest you make this a stop when in Tupelo.

It's not Graceland by far. But if you're a true Elvis fan you will enjoy the tour. I have been several times with my kids. It's not a long tour but worth the stop if you're in the tupelo area.

Not a big deal unless you are an ardent fan of Elvis Presley. One way for Tupelo to make some $ from their famous hometown son. We chose to just drive by. The Tupelo Visitor's Center has some of Elvis' costumes on display. I think visiting Graceland in Memphis is, of course, so much better.

After visiting Graceland we went down to visit the Elvis Presley birthplace in Tupelo. Tupelo is a nice small place to visit. We visited the birthplace ealie in the morning, so you will kinda have this place all to yourself before opening hours. it is accessable before opening hours, but you will have to wait till later to entre the...
