This is really the house he was born in unlike other reproductions we have been to. The tour was ok a little pricey for what you get but if you love Elvis you gotta go.

I just visited the Elvis Presley birthplace. Arriving one hour prior to closing, the attendant only allowed me to purchase a ticket for one or the other. They recommended the house. Very meager beginnings, the Presley family built the home in 1934 for $180 on...More

Although we did not go inside this small house, we walked around it and the surrounding grounds. All was very interesting as well as some of the memorabilia in the the gift shop area. I would recommend a visit.

We were fortunate enough to be able to stop here on a roadtrip. There is good and bad about this place; though mostly good. If at all possible, see the birthplace before going to Graceland. This is a very small museum we got through in...More

I thoroughly enjoyed our visit . It was very humbling to see how Elvis lived in the little two roomed house built for $180 by his father. I really enjoyed the mock church service too. Definatly a must do.

The whole complex focuses on Elvis' early years, to about age 13. Trivial information, but important in portraying what made him who he was later in life. Nice grounds, museum, church, and birthplace house.

It was exactly what I expected. We enjoyed the history of Elvis and his early years. Make sure to asked about the military discount to make the price excellent.

We were there in the pouring rain and it was fine - the lady in the house in particular was great, but I also enjoyed the church part which I didn't expect... guess you much have had a bad day

If I remember correctly. There is a museum, I’m sure there’s a phone number that you can call to confirm.
