Tupelo 'Elvis Presley Heights Museum' Closed

September 20, 2010 | Other

The 'Presley Heights Museum' in Tupelo has now officially closed down. The museum which claimed to have Elvis' tour bus from his 1976 - 1977 tours, the microphone from the Tupelo '56 concerts, Elvis' pink & black Cadillac from 1957 and also the original 'Blues Brothers Mobile' shut its doors permanently. The museum and its contents, operated by Bill Kinard, have been the subject of debate within the Elvis World and plenty of knowledgeable fans believe that most items were fake.

Shame on EPE and Priscilla & Lisa !!! We deserve better, much better ! They get greedy and do not respect fans' interests and loyalty ! Sorry bitches.

I'm not quite sure what EPE have to do with this news story, they had nothing to do with this museum or it's closure. I suppose some people try to bash them at every opportunity, I'm just surprised that Ernst, Sony or Tom Parker were not included in the rant. As far as the museum itself goes, I think it's closure was inevitable given the questionable nature of some of it's exhibits.

jungfrau - thank you for contributing to the notion that Elvis fans are not that intelligent.

Tony C and Steve : absolutely right ! Nothing to do at all with the topic ! The agressive writing style ( see also the topic "Priscilla to be honored" ) makes me think of a former female member who was banned from this site not so long ago . Just being a (new ?) member for a couple of hours since today makes me think another screenname was chosen . But I could be wrong of course , so let's hope I'm wrong. I still wonder why it seems THAT difficult for some to give an opinion without using bashing language. Always El.

jungfrau, Calling Elvis' only wife and only child "sorry bitches." I think that is a bit over the top.
