Whether or not you are an Elvis Presley’s fan Graceland Mansion is an interesting visit. It seemed so odd to me. As we entered the tour bus we were handed a headset along with a tablet. This was our tour guide though Graceland. The tablet showed a 3d image of every room and included some audio. I must say, I prefer a human tour guide. It was a great day at Graceland but a bit pricey.
Me entering the gates to get our tickets.
This is the Graceland Mansion from the outside front.
As you enter the house, you see a formal living room.
A downstairs bedroom for Elvis’s parents.
A formal ding room opposite the front living room
The kitchen would be considered modest by today’s standards.
A basement TV room with original old TVs.
A basement pool room. Perhaps the cloth on the walls and ceiling deadened the sound of the pool balls.
A lounge area was in the back of the house.
Elvis’s daughter Lisa’s swing set..
The back yard and back of house.
This is the Elvis family tree. Left side is Elvis father’s side. Right is Elvis Mother’s side.
This hand painted picture shows the gates and home as it probably appeared in the late 50’s/early 60’s judging by the car.
This was the family pool.
This was a game/lounge room in the Racquetball building.
And the garden area where the gravesites are located.
These are the 4 grave sites of Elvis, His Dad (Vernon), His Mom (Gladys) and Vernon’s Mom.
After touring the house, we went across the street to the Exposition buildings that held numerous artifacts. I thought this MG was a cool little car.
And of course his famous pink Cadillac.
There were quite a few other cars in the collection including a Ferrari, Rolls Royce and Mercedes.
I liked the pink Jeep..
Various gold/platinum records..
A boat Elvis owned..
Various motorcycles Elvis owned.
Elvis owned a few snowmobiles, but since there was very little snow in Memphis, he had wheels instead of skis..
The Military I Hope you can read the plaques? They say it all and is less typing for me..LOL
