Sneaking a peek into another person’s life is inevitably fascinating — especially when that person is a celebrity. It’s no wonder, then, that so many people love to visit historic celebrity homes that now serve as museums or (yes) even places to crash.
Well-known figures across the globe have graced us with a physical reminder of their legacies — from Elvis Presley, whose oddball Tennessee manse is fit for a King; to Elizabeth Taylor, whose Palm Springs oasis can now be rented on Airbnb; to Prince, whose Minnesota estate offers visitors exclusive access to one-of-a-kind memorabilia. More into Claude Monet, Johnny Cash , Sigmund Freud or Albert Einstein? They, too, have homes you can stop by for a visit.
Not only are these spots filled with memories, they are places where we can create our own — while honoring the pioneers who shaped the course of human history.
