It was nice to see the Birthplace of Elvis since we were headed to Graceland. We didn't pay to go inside the house or chapel and didn't feel we missed anything in not doing so. The staff inside were very helpful and friendly as well as the gift shop. The grounds were nice and if you are headed to Graceland this is great stop to start the trip. It was easy ride from Tupelo to Memphis to see Graceland on the same day.

This place was very easy to get to, not far off the beaten path. We were traveling from FL to Arkansas and it just worked out. Neat artifacts and grounds. We did not do the paid tour, but enjoyed ourselves for less than an hour reading the attraction info, seeing the buildings and visiting the gift shop. Unfortunately the free movie was not showing because they had a wedding going on that evening. Definitely worth a quick stop and perhaps the tour which includes going inside the very small home and church for a small fee (we didn't have the time or inclination to do it.)

Hard to believe Elvis had such humble beginnings in a tiny two room shotgun house in Tupelo. The museum was well done with a large number of exhibits for the size of the facility.

This was part of a tour and for Elvis fans a real must. Your first stop is the church and if you really don't like churches then it's something you'll have to consider because it's a video reconstruction of a church service and lasts about 20 mins. Then you go out through the other door and you can visit the house of Elvis's birth. This is a small one level shotgun style house. There is a small museum/shop/centre as well.

This very small home is proof that anyone can succeed in America regardless of beginnings! It is certainly worth a visit if in Tupelo. Also need to include Tupelo Hardware downtown to see where Elvis bought his first guitar (instead of a bb gun!). Johnnie's Drive Inn is nearby (got to do that too since the King ate here frequently).
