New Exhibits at Elvis Presley's Graceland

To get to know the real Elvis Presley - the man and the legendary entertainer - you have to explore Elvis Presley's Graceland.

In addition to touring the home, fans can discover so much more about Elvis through the many exhibits on site - including two brand new ones that just opened this month.

"I Shot Elvis" is a photography exhibit that focuses on the iconic photos of Elvis and the photographers and fans who took them. The exhibit includes artifacts, such as clothing and jewelry, that Elvis wore in the photos.

Another new exhibit is "Elvis: That's The Way It Is" at 45. It features artifacts and information on this fan-favorite documentary.

Let's explore these exhibits a little more.

"I Shot Elvis" celebrates photographers such as Al Wertheimer, Bob Williams and William Speer, who all captured stunning shots of Elvis. Of course, fans snapped pictures of Elvis any chance they could, and some of those photos are included in the exhibit, too.

William Speer took this lovely portrait of Elvis' parents, Vernon and Gladys. The necklace, which Gladys is wearing in the photo, was purchased for her by Elvis in New York in January 1956.

The exhibit starts with pictures of a young performer and takes guests through his entire career. Elvis' powerful performances in Las Vegas are highlighted, as are some jumpsuits. A few photos of Elvis at home in Graceland are also included, as are pieces of his personal wardrobe.

Elvis' stage costumes are legendary. Each are beautifully crafted, and fans can check out the gorgeous details at "I Shot Elvis." Elvis' stage costumes are legendary. Each are beautifully crafted, and fans can check out the gorgeous details at "I Shot Elvis."

Elvis was always perfectly dressed. Other pieces in the "I Shot Elvis" exhibit include shoes, belts, hats and scarves.

There's even a "Take a Selfie" with Elvis section of the exhibit at the beginning. Tag your photo #ElvisSelfie, and it could be featured on Graceland.com!

Our other new exhibit, "Elvis: That's The Way It Is" at 45, celebrates the documentary's anniversary.

The summer of 1970 was such an exciting one for Elvis as he prepared for his Las Vegas performances at the International Hotel (now the Westgate Las Vegas Resorts & Casino). "Elvis: That's The Way It Is" captures Elvis as he prepares for and entertains thousands of fans. It's a fascinating and unique view into how Elvis worked.

"Elvis: That's The Way It Is" was Elvis' first documentary since the start of his career in 1956.

The exhibit features numerous artifacts seen in the film, and from that period of Elvis' career, including stage costumes, guitars, jumpsuits, contracts, memorabilia and more.

"Elvis That's The Way It Is" at 45 is a part of the VIP experience at Graceland. "Elvis That's The Way It Is" at 45 is a part of the VIP experience at Graceland.
