Upgrades to the King of Rock and Roll’s mansion and the surrounding areas are in the cards according to an interview with the new owner published by the Commercial Appeal. Those additions could include new exhibits, an expanded Heartbreak Hotel, 80 acres of potential new development and those just the first ideas reported in the paper.

“There needs to be a better reason to come to Graceland and stay longer, and that means nicer places to stay and more interesting things to see,”  said Joel Weinshanker, founder of the new ownership group.

That’s not all he said either, read more about why Weinshaker said Graceland and Memphis are inseparable in the full article here. 

Meanwhile, check out this recent video released by Graceland of one new exhibit based on a huge TV event of the king.
