    Elvis has entered the building.

    The King of Rock and Roll has a new display at the Newseum. The exhibit is called "Elvis! His Groundbreaking, Hip-Shaking, Newsmaking Story."

    The museum opened the exhibit in time for what would have been Presley's 75th birthday year. Visitors will be able to check out never-before-seen artifacts from Elvis Presley's life, along with items that are synonymous with Elvis, like his sequined "American Eagle" jumpsuit worn during rehearsals for his "Aloha From Hawaii concert in 1973, according to the Newseum.

    The exhibit also follows the sensation's rise to fame through private telegrams, letters and scrapbooks.

    A video produced by the museum features vintage footage of Presley.
