Is Graceland worth the price of admission?

Yes! It’s well worth the it.

A large percentage of visitors to Graceland in 2022 and 2023 will purchase the Elvis Experience Tour for a base price of $77 per person. This tour choice typically takes about 3.5 to 4 hours to complete and includes the following:

  • Graceland Mansion audio-guided tour 
  • Self-guided tour of two airplanes
  • Full access to Elvis Presley’s Memphis entertainment complex

Visitors have been able to tour the customized red, white and blue jets for decades. The entertainment complex is still like new, having opened in 2017. Both are found across the road from the house, as is the paid guest parking area.

It would be accurate to consider Elvis Presley’s Memphis entertainment complex to be at least four spacious museums. Very spacious. New exhibits were added in 2021 and 2022. More will be added in 2023 and 2024.

I spend most of my weekends enjoying outdoor adventures in the heart of the South in a region filled with beautiful mountains, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. Whether I’m hiking in a state park, cycling on a remote country road or taking in the streetscapes at a historic downtown courthouse square or Main Street, I’m always on a mission to capture photos to share, and provide helpful information about some of the places I have visited.
