The grounds are well maintained. We were there on a Thursday morning at opening and it was not busy. We saw spaces for bus parking, so I imagine it can be car y. We purchased senior tickets for $13 pp that were good to get us into the house, the museum, and the church. You can buy separate tickets for... More

Seeing Elvis’ birthplace and the grounds were pretty cool, as was the car similar to the one his parents owned when he was a boy. The museum was closed when we went but we still walked around the grounds. There is also an old church building that we enjoyed seeing. I would say this is worth a stop if you’re... More

To be in the place Elvis Presley was born was just unreal. We have grown up listening to his music and knowing about him, didn't prepare us for being in his birthplace. It was a very moving day.

Ask me what songs Elvis sung, I may be able to name 2-3, jailhouse rock. Ask my mom, and she would know every one. I was in Tupelo, Mississippi visiting the War Between the States Battlefields, and figured what the heck. I didn't pay the fee for the tour to go inside, I just walked around the outside and took...

Nice museum where you will learn a lot about Elvis. Also, take time to go to downtown Tupelo, they have a lot of good local dining spots. Visit Tupelo hardware where Elvis bought his first guitar. See the car museum near downtown.

I have traveled around the world and in all fifty U.S. States, but Tupelo was an amazing little southern city. It was clean, warm, and has an amazing museum preserving memories and artifacts of its most famous citizen, Elvis Presley. We spent a few hours at this museum. We had already been to Memphis, but found this place more interesting.... More

Another of my late, late review! We thought we would give Tupelo a miss after spending a day in Graceland. We collected the car and left Memphis after breakfast. The sat nav was set for Nashville. We were already an hour away from Memphis and I had the sudden desire to see Tupelo. My husband turned the car around and... More

A beautiful tribute to Elvis' early years from birth to his family moving to Tennessee. An inspiring chapel and memories of his early beginnings as a gospel singer.

What an educational, interesting, and fantastic place to visit! My husband and I took the whole tour. We spent several hours there reading, and listening to all the stories. If you are in the area this is worth the trip. Not only will you learn about Elvis's early years, but also about the community at that time. This is a... More
