If you like his music you will like this quick stop, It was a little boring to me, the giftshop is the main draw rather than the musuem part of this place

This sits right next door to Cooter' Garage (the Dukes of Hazzard museum). It seemed to be nothing but a tourist trap gift shop. I didn't ever figure out where the "museum" portion of this establishment was. Most of the items I saw were WAY over-priced. For example, there were several shelves of "Hillbilly Wine (or Champagne) Glasses," all priced... More

It is a tourist souvenir shop and a little museum memorabilia shop. If you looking for a little something to take home, gifts for friends and relatives, you'll find something here.

I can't say I'm a big Willie Nelson fan, but we ventured in anyway. Make sure you try on the bandana with braids. So funny!

Great if you're looking for fun and funky country music souvenirs, otherwise I would skip it. It's basically a normal souvenir shop with a small Willie Nelson museum in the back. But it cost $8.00 pp to enter the museum part.

Loved this little shop. Very touristy, but that's what it is for. Great gift shop, can find something for everyone back home. Museum was worth the money if your an old country fan like I am. Priced are reasonable.

This is a pure and simple tourist trap. Unless you are giving a command performance for your relatives from out of town who DEMAND to go to the Opry and get the "Nashville Experience" and they are from TX, don't bother going here.

Just across from Opryland, a treasure trove of Willie memorabilia. A whole wall of his gold/platinum records... stage outfits from Dolly, Porter Wagoner, a guitar from Roy Orbison... even Elvis memorabilia. This museum is a feast for the ears and eyes... it befits the type of guy Willie is, as well... you really get a sense of who the man... More
