About the Museum
The Elvis Presley Birthplace and Museum is located in the two-room frame house in Tupelo, Mississippi where the rock and roll legend was born in 1935. Elvis only lived in this house for the first three years of his life, as financial difficulties forced the Presley family to move several times; nonetheless, the museum displays photographs and memorabilia from the singer’s childhood. In addition to the house, the museum site features a chapel and the Assembly of God church where the Presley family worshiped. A scored concrete circle surrounds the birthplace, with one granite block marking each of the forty-two years of Elvis’ life.
