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.

You could feel Elvis's gentle spirit. His energy. Wish he was still alive. good tour of his house. Hits clothes & platinum records etc everything was brilliant to see. In such a short time in this earth, he made such an impact. God bless his soul.
This was my 3rd visit to the home of the icon Elvis Presley. And I loved as much as I did the first. My two travel companions were making their first visit and it was fun to watch them enjoy themselves. It was lovely to see Graceland decorated for Christmas. Some of the exhibits and the grounds have changed since my last visit but the essence remains. This is where Elvis lived and loved. It is also a great travel back into that time period. Also the staff was friendly and helpful. Also give yourself lots of time to explore! I guess you can figure out I loved my visit there.
