The King of Rock 'n' Roll is kept alive by Elvis Presley's Graceland, the home of the man who won every woman's heart all over the world.
Graceland was the home of Elvis, his wife Priscilla and their daughter Lisa-Marie, who lived there for many years until Elvis and his wife split in 1973.
In 1954, Elvis had begun his singing career with the famous Sun Records label in Memphis and later was sold to RCA Victor in 1955.
By 1956, Elvis was an international sensation, starred in 33 successful films and had sold over one billion records - more than any other artist in the world.
Visitors will experience the sights, sounds and possessions of Elvis and his family, the stables and paddocks, his many trophies, awards, movie posters, the outfits he wore in many of his movie roles as an Actor and the outfits he wore on many of his tours as a Singer and Artist.
Visitors will also experience the room where he died in on August 16, 1977.
This year would have been Elvis Presley's 75th birthday.
See Elvis's home, celebrations and the crafted gifts by the people of Memphis, open to the public all year round from 9am - 5pm from Monday to Saturday and from 9am - 4pm on Sunday's.
When I was a child I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero in the movie. So every dream I have ever dreamed has come true a thousand times." - Elvis Presley.
