Great experience, located next to the birth place of Elvis. You can tell Elvis was very spiritual and family was very important to him. They were still remodeling and more construction was planned.

It had been over 10 years since I last visited and the expansions were informational and entertaining. Worth every penny of the entrance fee, this mini-Graceland gives pride to every Mississippi native and guest!

Situated close to the birthplace this centre has more insight into Elvis' early life and assists in painting a picture of what they must have gone through and the trials and tribulations of the communities at that time. There is a lot to keep everyone interested as it assists in painting an avid picture.

A truly wonderful experience. From Elvis's Birthplace house to the recent statues in the garden and picnic area. They are all worthy of a visit. Also the Church is a wonderful place to see. They are in the process of building paths for wheelchair access to the picnic area, soon to be completed. You can spend as much time as... More

A place to look at and consider the roots of our hero. It is just so simply done but is fantastically moving.

We had visited Graceland and wanted to take the time to go to his birth home. We are glad that we did it was a very good experience. We were surprised at the small house that he was born in and the small church that he attended as a child, such humble beginning, for such an end to what he... More

IT WAS CLOSED!. Closed on a Friday afternoon at 1:00 PM. Granted the weather was kinda crummy, drizzle and about 45 degrees but geez.....come on... More

Visited the Center and decided it was worth the $8 to see the house Elvis born in and the grounds that makes up the life of the King of Rock and Roll. Its not a fantastic but it will touch the soul of those who truly remember the King.
