Graceland’s $137-million expansion project is finally complete. In addition to the 450-room hotel that opened last year, guests can now enjoy a brand new 200,000-square-foot campus featuring two museums, a performance sound stage, and multiple restaurants and shops.

The expansion completion comes just before the 40th anniversary of Elvis’ death and is sure to remind visitors just how influential the artist was. “Elvis: The Entertainer,” one of the main museums in the complex, focuses on the star’s career by displaying hundreds of iconic items, like his collection of gold and platinum records and his jumpsuits.

Additionally, Presley Motors and Presley Cycles both showcase Elvis’ vehicles. You’ll have a chance to get up close and personal with Elvis’s Pink Cadillac as well as his many motorcycles.

The complex is now open to visitors, and tickets are $57.50. Take a look at the highlights.
