Graceland: Grand Opening of “Elvis Presley’s Memphis” & Brand New Hotel

Dec 2, 2016
On March 2nd, Graceland – the famed Memphis home of Elvis Presley – will change forever, with the opening of a huge 200,000 square foot entertainment complex called ‘Elvis Presley’s Memphis.’

The new facility, called “the greatest expansion in Graceland history,” will include a new museum full of Elvis memorabilia, an additional “Presley Motors” museum for over twenty of Elvis’ cars including his pink Cadillac along with his two airplanes (named the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog II), as well as space for live performances and and two restaurants named for Presley’s parents.

Naturally, ticket prices will be going up for the entire Graceland experience as well. Before and after March 2, the price for a basic Graceland Mansion tour will remain $38.75 for adults, though the John Stamos narrated iPad tour will be replaced with a new orientation film and audio guide.

The Graceland Platinum tour will be replaced with an Elvis Experience tour, and go from $42.50 to $57.50 for adults, and prices go up from there. (Children aged 6 under remain free. Have mercy.)

The new AAA 4-Diamond Guest House at Graceland directly across the street is another new addition to the Graceland experience.

Recently opened in late October, the 450-room hotel complex offers rooms, suites, more performance space and dining options. If you’re interested in seeing Graceland before the new complex opens, Travelzoo has negotiated discounts through February 28th of up to 40% off the price of a regular stay – which means you save more than enough for a couple final tours through the King’s iconic mansion.
