Huge Elvis Museum


You might remember we did a story on Dolly Parton’s Dollywood themepark at Pigeon Forge a few days ago, well we found another great attraction at Pigeon Forge- The world’s largest private collection of Elvis memorabilia. Founder Mike Moon has been collecting Elvis stuff since the king himself gave him a belt. The museum is jam packed full of great Elvis memories, theres cars, clothing, jewellery even Elvis’s guns and a orange toilet seat cover which Elvis once owned. The guy has everything, he even has his swim trunks and a set of Elvis’ bibles and encyclopedias and even some bottles of his aftershave and cologne plus his final set of sunglasses and even his last tube of toothpaste. There’s hours of kitsch fun here and guess what the exhibition has a great gift shop where you can buy your very own Elvis memorabilia. The Elvis Museum is at 2638 Parkway, Pigeon Forge in Tennessee.

    I just want to ask what were his favorite after shaves and colognes? 🙂

    There are stories that Elvis liked Brut and Green Irish Tweed in the early days and used Crest toothpaste, but I would imagine in his later life he would have just rubbed himself with butter or bacon.

    There have been some ‘official’ and ‘unofficial’ Elvis colognes and the like over the years but they have only been to cash in on poor old Elvis, There was even a bottle of his ‘Teddy Bear’ cologne on sale- people will do anything to make a quick buck.

    It’s said in later years Elvis was crazy for the smelly stuff and would use bucket loads colognes and perfumes on his body to help soak up the sweat.

    Anyway when Elvis eventually comes out of hiding (from his secret island with Hitler, Lady Di and Marilyn Monroe) I’m sure he will do the talk show circuit and the likes of Oprah or Jerry Springer and might be able to ask him.
