  • Even a true Elvis fan would find it hard to love this site. The museum itself has few original pieces (most are at Graceland) and doesn't allow pictures. The house itself is nicely restored with authentic period pieces. You do get a good feel for how poor the family was. The docent was excellent and provided information and stories. The grounds are beautifully landscaped.

Some of the inside stuff would have been nice to see, but we got a very good feel for everything and it was so well presented. Highly recommended going
