Get an intimate glimpse into the personal life of Elvis Presley with a pilgrimage to Graceland, the most famous rock ‘n’ roll residence in the world. Set on a 13.8-acre estate in Memphis, the Colonial Revival-style mansion with majestic white columns was a cherished place where Elvis created countless memories with friends and loved ones for more than 20 years. Today, it is a must-visit Tennessee attraction, drawing more than 600,000 visitors every year who wish to experience the life and legacy of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
Elvis was well known for being an early adopter of the latest and greatest technology. Following in his footsteps, Graceland is one of the first major U.S. attractions to offer a fully immersive, interactive multimedia tour experience via iPad, using state-of-the-art iBeacon technology to provide location-based content as guests explore the mansion and grounds. Each iPad provides a narrated Graceland tour by celebrated actor and long-time Elvis fan John Stamos as well as video and photos from the Graceland Archives, allowing guests to access room-specific content, archival home videos taken in the exact spot in the home, little-known trivia and rarely-seen photos.
After experiencing the legendary home of Elvis Presley, explore the other on-site areas to marvel at his extensive lineup of gold and platinum records, iconic glittering jumpsuits along with extraordinary film and music memorabilia. Also on the property grounds are Graceland Plaza and Graceland Crossing, where you can see displays such as the new “I Shot Elvis” photography exhibit (open Feb. 27, 2015), showcasing famous photos of Elvis and the stories and photographers behind them. The Elvis Presley Automobile Museum features more than 20 pristine vehicles owned by Elvis, as well as some of his favorite motorized toys.
For an unparalleled Elvis experience, opt for the VIP Tour, and gain exclusive access to a special VIP-only exhibit, as well as front-of-the line access, a keepsake backstage pass and a special all-day ticket. The new VIP-only exhibit will focus on “Elvis: That’s the Way It Is” (open March 6, 2015), showcasing behind-the-scenes footage of Elvis’ hot four-week engagement at the International Hotel in Las Vegas during the summer of 1970.
