Graceland, the famous estate of Elvis Presley, will be possible to visit virtually. The new option seems attractive especially during the coronavirus pandemic.
A new option has been made available on the website dedicated to Elvis Presley’s iconic estate. Located in Memphis, Tennessee, Graceland can now be visited virtually. 2-hour tours will lead Internet users around the “King” house, which has been transformed into a museum. Fans of the singer will also be able to see the Meditation Garden, where the rock and roll star is buried. The $100 ticket price also includes a guided tour of Presley’s jet and artist-related artifacts. Online visitors will be able to ask questions during the virtual tour.
Graceland. Monument, historical place
Elvis Presley bought a Memphis mansion for $100,000 dollars. He lived there for 20 years and moved in in 1957. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a National Historic Landmark. Before the coronavirus pandemic, Graceland was visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. After a temporary closure due to the lockdown, sightseeing has resumed, but to a limited extent. The first virtual tours are scheduled for January 27, February 25 and March 25. More dates may follow soon if the idea proves successful.
