The Newseum - Washington D.C.'s most interactive museum - in collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprises, is preparing an exhibit chronicling the headlines and stardom of the King of Rock and Roll.

Exhibit Highlights
• Rare photographs and original newspapers / magazines covering Presley's career.
• Presley's iconic 1957 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
• The "American Eagle" jumpsuit and cape Presley wore during rehearsals for his "Aloha From Hawaii" concert in 1973.
• The gold-and-diamond belt presented to Presley in 1969 for breaking Las Vegas attendance records.
• Presley's Gretsch G6122-1962 Chet Atkins Country Gentleman.

So, if you happen to be in the D.C. area after March 19, I highly recommend a visit to the Newseum, on Pennsylvania Avenue, 3 blocks west of the U.S. Capitol and across the street from the National Gallery of Art.
