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.

Hello HappyCamper?,

Thanks for stopping in. Ironically your view is very different from the many thousands of happy customers we see each year.

Perhaps your not a fan of traditional country music artists like Willie and his friends such as Patsy Cline, Webb Pierce, Waylon Jennings and the many other artists we feature in our museum. A walk through the museum is a tour through pure country music history. But, if those type of artists are not your cup of tea then I can see where you would be unhappy since we have sooo much of it!

Thanks for coming in and hope you're happy camping again soon.

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 is. I loved every minute -- and so will you!!
