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.

Spectacular! We took the VIP tour and had a great time. Our tour guy's name was Clint. He is amazing and gave us a very rich informative tour. It was so good that we want to bring a group of friends for a future visit. Hopefully we get to have him again. The mansion is gorgeous and well kept. All the details inside the house make you feel like you went back in time and you were visiting Elvis and his family. The grounds are beautiful. Impeccable landscaping. They added a whole new area where you can find museums, interactive photo booths, more & diverse gift shops, restaurants and bars. It's worth a visit. It feels like an Elvis Presley fan's Disneyland.
We visited Graceland 06-19-21 for the VIP Tour and stayed at the Graceland Guest House. The staff at Graceland were very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a wonderful tour guide and were very pleased with our tour. We had lunch at Vernon's BBQ and the food was delicious. We wanted a banana split in Minnie May's Sweets, however, they were out of bananas. We went back the next day when they had bananas, however, they then didn't have any whip cream. (Really? Management - send someone to the store and buy some whip cream if you have to.) Overall, we had a great time and, of course, we're devoted Elvis fans for life.
