Was not quite sure what to expect at the birthplace and museum. Would it be a cheap trashy novelty experience? I needn't have worried. A wonderful site manned by some lovely local people who are quite happy to tell you about the towns history. Such a friendly place. As for the 2 room wooden shack built by Vernon Presley and...

Whether you like Elvis or not it's worth visiting this attraction to get a feel for how from humble beginnings a music legend came and also what he did for his community once he became wealthy

Such a great talent to lose so young. Coming from very humble beginning to rise to such highs and fame. He still draws new fans. The home and hurch revel poverty yet no lack of desire to grow.

We visited Tupelo to get a feel for Elvis early life, before visiting Graceland. We were not disappointed. This is a beautiful site and the tribute to Elvis is very well done. It was so peaceful and calm. We expected it to be a bit tacky but it wasn't. It was all done very well and we were very impressed.

After a wonderful visit to Graceland, we actually went back the next morning for some extra pictures, the visit to Elvis' birth home was a little bit of a let down. It seems like a forced museum.

Quite small and unpretentious, this museum has the very 'Shotgun House' Elvis was born in. The museum has a video of events from his early years which is informative and the nice lady who guides the tour of the house is very informative.
