This attraction was located off the Strip at 3401 Industrial Rd but closed permanently October 1, 2006.
The Elvis-A-Rama Museum featured $6 million worth of original Elvis Presley personal items and memorabilia owned by Chris Davidson, who had collected Elvis memorabilia for many years. It housed Elvis' 1955 cadillac limo, million-dollr Mercedes-Benz, Las Vegas jumpsiuts, stage guitars and the "Elvis in PanoramaVision" film. Impersonators performed live tributes three times daily as a complimentary feature with admission.
Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., acquired the assets of the Elvis-A-Rama museum in 2006, including the trademark to the name "Elvis-A-Rama," the related website and a substantial portion of the memorabilia on display at the establishment. The Elvis-A-Rama name was retired as part of CKX's overall plan to bring a world class Elvis-themed attraction to the Las Vegas strip.
