As one of the first classic major attractions of US tourism, Elvis Presley’s Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee is opening and offering tours again from Thursday 21st May.

Graceland, Memphis

The most visited residential building in the USA after the White House wants to ensure the safety of guests with an extensive hygiene programme. With Mansion tours reduced to 25% capacity, you will have the unique opportunity to walk in Elvis’ footsteps like never before - in your own personal tour space spread out from other touring guests. Social distancing at its best! 

For tourists from Europe there is still an entry ban for the USA. However, Graceland's reopening, which has so far been aimed primarily at American guests, is an important milestone in terms of the fact that sufficient attractions will be opened when transatlantic tourism is restarted. Many other attractions in Memphis remain closed for now.

Graceland's reopening falls into the second phase of opening Memphis after the successful completion of the first phase, which started on 4th May with small steps.
