Elvis may have left the building, but his memory lives on forever at the Elvis and Hollywood Legends Museum in Pigeon Forge! For over 35 years, this museum has been honoring the work, life, and legend that is the King of Rock n' Roll. Just minutes down the Parkway from us here at the Pigeon Forge Ramada, the museum is a must-see for any fan of music.
One of the things that make this museum so unique is the firsthand experience you get. You will be guided through the dozens of exhibits featuring hundreds of artifacts by two of Elvis's closest friends – Donnie Summer and Ed Hill. This audio tour gives you a complete experience of the life of Elvis, from his beginning in Memphis to his final years in Las Vegas, and everything in between. It's an incredible way to experience the life and times of one of the most important American musicians of all time.
Some notable exhibits include his signature TCB (Taking Care of Business) Pistol, one of Elvis's favorite guns, the ring that Elvis designed and gave to J.D. Sumner live on stage (he became known for his philanthropy in his later years), and a variety of objects and artifacts from his final tour.
There's a whole lot to take in at the Elvis and Hollywood Legends Museum. The King led a big life and left behind quite a legacy. It's one of our favorite spots here at the Pigeon Forge Ramada, so be sure to check it out during your stay!
