  • Stopped here on a tour. You can pay to see inside the house or walk around outside, I just did the outside. Nice set out area you can walk around with a church, some statues. Visitor centre, museum...

  • We really enjoyed our visit here. Everyone was so friendly and informative. The grounds were well kept. The home, church, and chapel experiences were so neat. I came here about 30 years ago as a child and I obviously appreciated it more this time as an adult. To see where Elvis was born and where his family lived and where they came from was a really neat experience.
  • I didn’t make it to town in time for an official inside tour so I went after hours and I think it may have been better. It was so peaceful and beautiful. I’m glad no one was around cause I think I got some great pics. I was able to take my time and really take in the awe-Inspiring beauty of it all. I played a little Elvis on my phone as I walked around the grounds and it was perfection.
