Almost everyone dreams of looking at the house that belongs to a celebrity even for a minute. What is hidden behind its walls? A luxurious environment that amazes at first sight, or more than modest interiors? Who has not dreamed of ever seeing the room in which a favourite actor or musician spent his childhood, where his or her favourite novel was written or where a world famous politician created his works? Many celebrities, during their lifetime, turned their houses into museums, accessible to general public, and some museum houses of outstanding people became accessible only after the death of the owners. The houses and apartments where once famous people lived, today are a special category of attractions, which are incredibly popular and unique.

The visitors come mainly to see Elvis's personal belongings, which are kept in the rooms. The numerous music awards, the colorful suits for shows and vintage records - thousands of fans of Elvis Presley from all over the world strive to see these valuable things with their own eyes. The adjacent territory of the residence is equally interesting. In the rear small courtyard is the family cemetery on which 'the King Rock-n-Rolls' and his parents are buried.
