Elvis Presley Birthplace & Museum

Description

The King's birthplace is indeed humble. On January 8, 1935, Elvis Aron and a twin brother, Jesse Garon, who died at birth, were born to mother Gladys in the bedroom of this modest two-room "shotgun shack," built by Elvis' father Vernon at a cost of $180. Both rooms (the second room served as the family kitchen) are open to the public, as are a museum and a chapel, both of which are located behind the house. The museum features many rare items from Elvis' early childhood in Tupelo, as well as more familiar regalia, including a three-piece outfit he wore on stage during the 1970s. Located at 306 Elvis Presley Boulevard, Tupelo, MS. Open Monday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5:30 PM, from May through September and 9 AM to 5 PM from October through April. Open Sundays from 1 to 5 PM, year-round. Closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas day. Admission to the birthplace is $2.50 for adults and $1.50 for children; admission to the museum is $6 for adults and $3 for children. Combined museum and birthplace admission is $7 for adults and $3.50 for children. Admission to the chapel is free. (601-841-1245)
