“Tastefully done.”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is a tastefully preserved site set in peaceful surroundings. The chapel Elvis attended gave an insight into his childhood and the house reminded us of his humble beginnings. Friendly staff in the museum. Well done.

“Nice museum and setting!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We had a great afternoon visit. The weather was perfect for the visit so the stroll around the grounds was wonderful. The video was informational and we loved the presentation in the chapel. The whole experience was well done. It is not a shrine, it is an effort to show what a person can accomplish with very humble beginnings.

“An enjoyable morning”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Seeing the house that Elvis was born is was pretty good. The lady that sat inside the house was really informative, fielding all sorts of questions from my family. She was clearly very passionate about visitors having a positive experience. The park is laid out nicely and nice in how it is maintained. We thought that the church experience went on for a bit long (kids got bored) but overall it was lovely. A place for a diehard Elvis fan to visit.

“Not tacky”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

As with Graceland, this was well done, lots of information on the early years and it was eerie to be in the room where he was born and in the church where he learned to love music. Well worth a visit.

“Nice park to visit”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

His home was not open but we walked around the park where chapel, home and fountain were. We opted not to go in museum since we have been to Graceland before.
