February 25, 2011

Experience the power of Elvis Presley's impact on the media in Elvis! His Groundbreaking, Hip-Shaking, Newsmaking Story, now open in the Sincerely Elvis museum. This exhibit explores how Elvis' music and physicality pushed the boundaries of free expression at a time when America was experiencing deep generational shifts. It is an updated version of the Newseum exhibit that just ended an 11-month run in Washington where it was seen by more than 700,000 visitors.

The exhibit is one of three new exhibits debuting at Graceland this year. Last week, The Roots of Elvis Exhibit opened as part of the Graceland VIP tour. Sponsored by the Tupelo Convention and Visitors Bureau, this exhibit tells the story of Elvis' early years and the influences that shaped him as a person and music legend. In January, the Elvis in 1956 Interactive Timeline was unveiled in the Graceland Trophy Building. It celebrates the year Elvis Presley catapulted from anonymity to superstardom with his first RCA single and national hit, "Heartbreak Hotel," his first album, "Elvis Presley," his first movie, "Love Me Tender," and his first television appearances.

Plan your trip to Graceland today to see these exciting new displays!
