Our tour guide told an interesting story of the history of this place. A history that included a teen aged Elvis, and a lot of other great artists like Howlin' Wolf and Billy Blue Bland. Exhibits are very interesting, and it's a worthwhile visit!

Visited Sun Studio to see where Elvis and others got started. It was fun to see the memorabilia. Our private tour guide read his speech off an iPhone so that was a little off putting. Could you walk around without the private tour, yes.

I agree, too much for one day. There’s a lot to see at Graceland, 3 hours or more. Depends where you’re staying too. Sun studio is in the centre of Memphis. We walked up from the Holiday Inn and got a local bus back.
