Graceland, Memphis

4.4
Once Elvis Presley's private home--and the place he died in 1977 at age 42--Graceland now is a museum dedicated to the famous entertainer. The mansion sits on a large estate that opened to the public in 1982. Tour the 23-room house to see its opulent and often tacky decor, providing insight into the mind of one of the world's most beloved music icons. To suit his unusual tastes, Presley extensively modified the estate, most notably adding a wrought-iron gate shaped like a book of sheet music. Just a year before his death the singer converted one of the rooms into a recording studio, where he worked on his final two albums.

  • Enjoyed the tour very much. I liked the ability to tour at your own pace and stay as long as you wanted.  more »
  • Graceland itself is a must see. Neat house inside and out. The tour was disorganized and they crammed us into the house like sardines. One time visit only.  more »

  • I was never a fan of "Groupie" status but Graceland is just that, a land of grace dedicated to a major musical influence in our lives. What Graceland does is to put into perspective the man and the music. Touring Elvis' home brings an understanding of where they intersected. It is a memorial to both. Enjoy. Appreciate. Walk away with a better understanding of how one person can impact so many.
  • They provide a tablet with a virtual tour so you can explore Graceland at your own pace. They kept the home in its near original state and a lot of interesting memorabilia of Elvis's estate. The tablet has extra pictures and videos in the respective rooms. You can always come back to them, so don't get distracted viewing the tablet whole touring the rooms in person.
