The Memphis Mansion, known as Randers Graceland until 2015, is a faithful replica of Elvis Presley’s estate in the USA. The Memphis Mansion was built by the Danish businessman and dedicated Elvis fan Henrik Knudsen.
In 2011 the Memphis Mansion finally opened its doors to visitors from all over the world. Two years later, a replica of Elvis’ birthplace in Tupelo was added to the attractions. The modest wooden house located in Memphis Mansion’s garden is identical to the house Elvis was born in.

On the outside, it is almost identical to Elvis Presley’s famous mansion. Be that as it may, the interior is not reminiscent of the original Graceland. If you wanted to see what Elvis Presley’s bedroom or living room looked like, Memphis Mansion will not provide you with this opportunity.
It may be formerly known as Graceland Randers, but it is identical to Graceland only on the outside. The retro decor, however, is really nice and the attention to detail is praiseworthy!
