Lisa Marie Presley Launches "Elvis...Through His Daughters Eyes" Exhibit

Lisa Marie Presley celebrated her birthday today at Graceland to launch the new "Elvis...Through His Daughter's Eyes" Exhibit. The new exhibit features 200 items assembled by Lisa Marie and the Graceland Archives team. The personal exhibit looks at Lisa Marie's experience of growing up with a famous father. Home movies, toys and rarely-seen family mementos are among the many items that are on display.

In an article by USA Today, Lisa Marie talks about her reaction when first seeing many of her childhood keepsakes - including a blue record player that spun her first 45s and a re-creation of Presley's nursery. "When I walked in and saw that, I gasped," said Presley. "I was going between laughter and wanting to break down in tears." In a private tour with Good Morning America's Cameron Mathison, Lisa Marie talked about her favorite childhood past-times. “What I remember is him waking me up to do things. Like, get in the golf cart and go take me for a ride in the middle of the night or in the wee hours of the morning or at some point when he probably shouldn’t have been doing that (laughs). It was always really special for me to get in the golf cart with him, be alone with him,”  Presley told Mathison.
