Our family planned an overnight stop in Tupelo on our drive to Memphis. This is a lovely place to visit - great little museum, the chapel with an interesting video, the house where Elvis was born and lovely grounds to walk around. We really enjoyed this area, it was tasteful, quiet and not over the top - just the place... More

We stopped by because we were driving through and needed a stop. We were pleasantly surprised by the visit to the actual birthplace in a small two room house without running water. The chapel, which had been moved, was very interesting and the 15 minute movie was worth watching.

If you are an Elvis fan or just remember the glory days of rock and roll, this is a required spot to visit. The Birthplace has an extensive collection of memorabilia as well as Elvis's actual boyhood home. The whole thing is actually pretty nice and a worthwhile stop.

WOW! I rode the Trace over 2 days beginning in Pasquo, Tn, and landing in Natchez, Ms. This is a great road to travel by motorcycle. It is a 444 mile ride through beautiful fields and forests. It's like an endless trip through the country to grandma's house. Loved it!

I decided to travel from Memphis, TN to Tupelo to see the Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum. I am glad I did. It took me about an hour and 40 minutes to get there. I enjoyed learning more about Elvis' early years and seeing the house he was born in. They also have the church he used to attend on... More

We visited on the way back to Florida from Memphis and it wasn't that far off the main road so it was a no brainier to stop ( I mean how often are you going to get back to Tupelo). The museum was pretty impressive and all the buildings have been lovingly restored and cared for. Inside the home are... More

The answer is probably yes for most people. For us it was any easy choice, because Tupelo was the perfect place to overnight on our drive down the Natchez Trace Pathway. Whether or not it is worth travelling to Tupelo specifically to visit this, will depend on how much of an Elvis fan you are. When we got there, the... More

driving to Florida, we had an extra day so went thru Memphis to stop at Graceland and then thru Tupelo. elvis' home/birthplace is a MUST see. 2 rooms, kitchen and bedroom. one bed, all slept together. we did not go to museum. enjoyed the gift shop. and it was Elvis' birthday, but we didn't stay for cake.

Nothing fancy or brash, I was so impressed by the simplicity of the whole site. Knowledgeable guides at the incredibly small house and church. The birthplace area is carefully laid out. It allows you space and time to contemplate just what an effect Elvis had on the world of popular music from such dirt poor beginnings. Among other things you... More
