    One of the best museums I have ever been to. The flow of the museum is perfect. It’s not just a wander around but a great flow of information. I learned so much on this visit. The balcony is hallowed ground.

    First time visiting with husband and wish we came sooner! We did the Archives Ultimate VIP tour. Sally was our guide on this extensive 3 1/2 hr visit, starting with a VIP shuttle to the mansion. Sally is a true Elvis fan through and through, and it was delightful to hear so much about the Presley family and history of the estate.

    From there, we took a shuttle to the archive building where we saw exclusive Elvis artifacts and accessories and had the fantastic opportunity to meet Allison and her team who prepare/catalog the archives of Elvis and Lisa Marie.

    We had access to all the exhibits on-site and were able to purchase VIP only merch. The tour ended with a lunch voucher at Vernon's, highly recommend the Meatloaf, BBQ sampler, mashed potatoes and gravy, okra, and apple cobble and icea cream for dessert!

    This was the best tour we've been on, and HIGHLY recommend anyone, wherever you live, to come visit and take this tour!

    I had been to Stax 12 years ago. It was nothing then like it is today. Awesome there just isn't another word for Stax. I highly recommend spending a lot of time. We spent almost 2 full days there and not sure absorbed all the info there was available.

    I hope they do something next year since it will be 50 years since Stax closed. I will be back for that.

    We took all 5 grandkids to the Zoo and had a blast. Kids had a great time ages 10 to 5 years old. We were there about 4 hours before their little gas tanks started giving out. They loved the Dino experience, along with all the animals. We have had a Memphis Zoo membership for almost 25years. We always have a great time when we go.

    This museum is amazing!! (It's a Smithsonian affiliate) First, there's a short informational movie, then you get a headset to do a self-guided tour. The narration is great, also includes songs. The exhibits are fantastic and there are some old fashioned juke boxes that you can pick songs to play. Definitely recommend.

    This is a nice stop if you're around Beale St. The Hotel is something to see and the Duck thing still draws a crowd, the Hotel is very inviting. Be sure to go to the roof for the view. I almost skipped it glad we didn't.

    We were in town for a bday trip, but it also happened to be St. Patrick's Day weekend. I've been to Beale before, just never during a holiday where the street is blocked off & you can only use the sidewalks. It was BUSY. The crowds were too thick for us to get a beer without standing in a really long line. The parade was great, but we left immediately after. I know there is so much to offer & would've been a better experience had we had full access to the streets as well as the sidewalks & there was room to get in anywhere. Still wasn't a bad time! We had a blast & will return!

    I was really looking forward to going to this Estate/Museum but a fire has significantly damaged it. Memphis has many places you can visit to learn about the Civil War, enslavement of blacks and this will be great when it reopens in the future.

    I’m a frequent park visitor for regular runs & races and events. I recently booked the Tour de Wolf pavilion for my family reunion and enjoyed the amenities including plenty of outlets, a grill, fire pit, small playground that was next to the large Woodland Discovery playground, and there was plenty of parking. The only downside was many of my family members had a rough time locating it. Even with the mention of the Woodland Discovery playground. Make sure to have a plan for your guests to find the pavilion for your next event.

    This park is laid out well. We bought table top tickets which I'm finding is uncommon in minor league parks. Food was good, service was great, and the Red Birds won!!

    This museum has an excellent display of Asian artifacts. The jade carvings are exquisite. I especially liked the room of dolls. The Judaic art is small. It has a few nice pieces.
