Elvis Exhibit Coming to the Musical Instrument Museum
Elvis will be in the building this summer at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, Arizona! On August 6, an Elvis Presley exhibit in the museum’s newly renovated Artist Gallery will open to the public. Guests will get to experience the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll through a collection of personal items, clothing, and musical instruments.
One highlight of the exhibit will be the iconic Martin D28 acoustic guitar that Elvis played during his 1977 tours, including his last concert on June 26 in Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to displaying it, the museum was chosen to restore the guitar to the condition in which Elvis last played it. Check out a photo gallery of the restoration work!
The new Elvis exhibit will feature a collection of items on loan from Graceland. These items will tell the story of Elvis through three main periods of the king’s career:
• The early rock ’n’ roll years, culminating with his stint in the Army (1956–1960)
• Elvis' Hollywood years (1960–1968)
• His triumphant return to live performance (1968–1977)
The Elvis exhibit will be featured in MIM’s popular Artist Gallery, which celebrates the world’s most revered music legends by exhibiting iconic instruments such as the piano John Lennon used on his "Imagine" album and Eric Clapton’s “Brownie” Stratocaster guitar played on the song “Layla.”
