Not What We Expected But We Enjoyed It
Apr 2021 • Family
We thought this was a large sit down restaurant at first. They do have some sandwiches, hot dogs, and ice cream. The bbq is decent. I wouldn’t recommend stopping for the food but we enjoyed looking at the cars and memorabilia on display.

Awesome felt like a kid again
Dec 2020 • Couples
Brought back alot of childhood memories grew up with the Duke's of Hazzard... Saw alot of things i had as a kid on display... It was cool to be able to get my picture taken in the general lee just wish you could still buy the general lee cars had one as a kid and was hoping to get one but they don't make them to sell anymore...
Loved it though it's a must for any fan of the show and to introduce new little fans...
Just a cool place it's worth stopping in not to far from the interstate...

Displeased with Tripadvisor
Oct 2020 • Couples
Cooter’s was great!! Issue is with Tripadvisor. After lengthy discussion with Manager he honored voucher for t-shirt and photo packages purchased online through Tripadvisor. Said they were not being accepted and shouldn’t be available online. Unfortunately, site had nothing about reimbursements, only showed cancellations 24 hours in advance. I did my part and made the trip. NEVER again will I purchase tickets this way. :(. Felt very shady with no way for me to contact them for reimbursement. Again the experience at Cooter’s was great! Even got to see Cooter himself with his Garage Band.

Great but misleading
Great time but the deal that I paid for no longer includes the food portion. Also sad we missed seeing Cooter.

Great Stop for the Dukes Fan
Jul 2020
Gift shop up front with a variety of merchandise. Free walk-through museum in the back. Keep an eye on the website as some actors from the show make the occasional appearance for photo/autograph opportunities. Convenient location near Opry Mills/Grand Ole Opry. Store is a bit tired and could use freshening up and during our visit, two employees were airing their grievances with one another and using foul language (apparently they weren't concerned with what Uncle Jesse would say). Overall worth at least a one time visit if your a show superfan.

It is fun if you're into it--and FREE
Mar 2020
Somewhere it said that this would cost $25 or so --- that's not right at all. It is FREE! Walk around and see all of the Dukes of Hazzard memorabilia - and lots of things to buy if you want souvenirs. Next to it is the Willie Nelson museum - also FREE. Yes, there are opportunities to spend money for additional attractions - but the base museum(s) - perfectly sufficient - are FREE and FUN!

Fun Day out!

This museum was fun for people of all ages. It was a quick stop located close to Opryland. We will surely bring out kids back to this point.

Fun memories
May 2019
There is a lot of memorabilia from the show and the era packed into a fairly small space. My sister and I enjoyed our browse down memory lane. There's obviously a lot of merchandise here as well. There are fun photo opportunities with the vehicles as well for $10.

Not much here. Just overpriced souvenirs. And a SMALL ice cream area. We did not feel it was worth the drive.
