The King’s Ransom Museum provides an exciting opportunity for fans to get a rare glimpse into the life and career of one of the world’s greatest entertainers, Elvis Presley. Showcasing pieces from both Elvis’ personal life and his acting and singing careers, The King’s Ransom Museum is truly unlike any other exhibit. Items include: Elvis’ 1977 Lincoln Continental, stage and film wardrobe, personal clothing items, jewelry, guns, badges and a variety of Elvis’ law enforcement objects, personal artifacts from his Graceland home including the Bible that was on his nightstand when he passed away and many more items encompassing Elvis’ life and career from the 1950’s through the 1970’s.

The King’s Ransom Museum is located in the Imperial Palace’s Royal Halls, on the third floor of the casino. The exhibit is open seven days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and admission is $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at www.imperialpalace.com. The King’s Ransom Museum is scheduled to remain at Imperial Palace until April 2010.
