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.
