        Eddie Fadal's Elvis Presley Museum is one of the world's most extensive Elvis memorabilia collections. The collection is only available to visit via the Internet. Eddie Fadal was a close friend of Elvis'. The museum includes memorabilia, collectibles, home movies, and sound recordings of Elvis and friends. Elvis would spend weekends at the Fadal home in Waco back in 1958. We are also looking into the possibility of opening a physical museum and welcome your ideas.
