Lisa Marie Presley Finds Her Graceland Visit Similar to 'This Is Your Life' Show
'I couldn't tell if I was going to laugh or cry,' admits the daughter of Elvis Presley as she recalls what went through her mind when opening new exhibit 'Elvis ... Through His Daughter's Eyes'.


For Lisa Marie Presley, returning to Graceland apparently feels like she's taking part in documentary series "This Is Your Life". The daughter of Elvis Presley spent her 44th birthday Wednesday, February 1 in Memphis, Tennessee, opening a new exhibit called "Elvis ... Through His Daughter's Eyes," and has since shared her thoughts over the experience.

Recalling what went through her mind when she first saw the exhibit, the Princess of Rock and Roll told PEOPLE, "I walked in with my twins [3-year-old Harper and Finley], looked around, and I gasped. I couldn't tell if I was going to laugh or cry." She added, "It was like that show 'This Is Your Life'."

Lisa Marie further explained, "I walked in and there was my tiny little first record player, my first faux fur coat, the key to the golf cart my father had given me for my birthday that I probably hadn't seen in 35 years." Indeed, the exhibit gives an inside look at her childhood life with her late father, featuring artifacts from her childhood that include her crib and first baby shoes.

During the chat with PEOPLE, the former wife of Michael Jackson expressed her gratitude for the archivists at her childhood home, who have preserved her things. She claimed the mementos would have gone missing in her possession, adding "I don't trust myself. If my head wasn't attached to my shoulders, I'd have lost it."

"Elvis ... Through His Daughter's Eyes" is featured on Graceland's VIP tour and will remain open for two years. Twenty-five people were chosen from more than 2,000 entries to attend the opening day of the exhibit on Wednesday. Each of them was allowed to bring a guest, and one reportedly delayed an appointment he had to prepare for brain surgery to be there.
