Priscilla Presley, the former wife of the late rock `n’ roll icon, is scheduled to appear at the grand opening of the complex in Tennessee on Thursday.

The 200,000-square-foot complex is located across the street from Graceland, Presley’s longtime home. It features a comprehensive Presley exhibit, a showcase of the cars he owned and used, a soundstage, two restaurants and retail stores. The complex will replace the aging buildings that have housed Presley-related exhibits for years.
