Graceland was beautiful! Just exactly what I expected! It was decorated just like a normally decorated home, back in the 50's, not too lavish, yet, not boring! Elvis' home is very moderate in size and decor. It's really cool to look at the different items! The best thing about being here is seeing his bikes and cars, and his plane! Then there's the room after room after room of his many, many, suits he wore, each placed in their own separate case, with their own lite highlighting it to show it off! Then there is the rooms were they display his albums! Record after record after record, each in it's own display case, displayed on a wall, and they go on forever! It seems endless! Items from their home are displayed in showcases, including Lisa Marie's crib, toy box, and other things from her nursery. Priscilla's wedding dress, Elvis's tux and cuff links, etc..... so many different things to see including the gravestones of Elvis and his father are here for you to see!
This is such an amazing place to visit. Elvis was such an enormous part of American pop culture, it is fascinating to see his career laid out in this beautiful park. Conservatively, I would suggest the basic tour package of the house/compound. The iPad tours are great! The simple Graceland tour will keep you busy for a solid 3-4 hrs. Personally, I think that is the perfect amount of Elvis; 5hrs would have been too much for me.
Great place for Elvis lovers. I myself don't identify myself in the group but had some moderate interest in visiting Graceland. The tour is highly interactive since they provide a tablet and headphones which provides a 360 view of various areas of Graceland with added commentary and facts which is in addition to the main tour. It was very informative for someone like myself who did not have a whole lot of knowledge on the life of Elvis Presley. The Graceland grounds had a lot of unique rooms and areas which were interesting to see. There is also a movie theater which plays Elvis' films, an automobile and plane exhibit, and museum with more memorabilia. These are not included in the base ticket. It should be noted that visiting Graceland is more expensive than you would expect with tickets starting at $40. Viewing the additional exhibits can run you closer to $65 per adult ticket. If you are visiting Memphis, then this experience is worth the price tag. If you are looking for a cheaper experience and do not have any interest in Elvis Presley, then maybe reconsider.
I grew up listening to Elvis Presley music and watched all of his movies. We were and still are Elvis biggest fans!!! It was amazing walking through his beautiful home and feeling his presence. There was so much to see!! It was a great experience to see his home videos with his precious daughter Lisa Marie, Priscilla, Elvis parents, family and friends....it looked like they had great times...sweet memories!! I loved the tour, I got a little emotional watching his videos and walking through his home. I really enjoyed the visit I would definitely go back. Highly recommend to visit Graceland!!!😊😊👍👍👍
To be honest I was not that bothered about visiting Gracelands but what a wonderful experience I would recommend it without question. The house is quite modest considering Elvis wealth what you see is a family home that was without doubt a home full of love, sharing and pride. Elvis his parents and grand mother are buried here. There is plenty to see in the home added to the other displays of cars and other mementos it’s truly a wonderful experience not to be missed.
