Full disclosure: There is a lot I like about Elvis. He made some great records and fun movies. But Graceland is all about bad taste, questionable decorating, and tacky marketing. I could have come back with a Mr.Potato Head Elvis or a stuffed bear wearing a white jumpsuit, shades and holding a guitar. Please. But what most bothered me was the "I'm bored" attitude of the staff, the people guarding the entrance, the people who sternly made you stay off the grass and in line. It was an odd watching people who clearly were being paid to do a job but who clearly thought the job was so stupid that they were insulted to be performing it. I expected tacky but not this tacky. I think Elvis deserves better.

I highly recommend visiting Graceland! It is an experience that can't be explained in words! I don't really consider myself a megafan, but Graceland is such a moving experience. It is amazing to see his impact on the world. If you go to Memphis, do not miss this attraction!!!

was interesting to see how king of rock and roll lived. mansion to me was best part of the tour. some exhibits were kind of a rip off to sell more expensive tickets. avoid heartbreak hotel, is run down and not much better than motel 6.all things considered enjoyed the experience and would recommend.

Went there with my wife who is a fan, but I have to say that I really enjoyed it too. So well organised, you think it's going to be a procession around the house, but it isn't, it soon thins out and you have plenty of time to look at everything. Quite emotional when you get into the gardens and look at the place Elvis is buried along with his parents and grandmother.
