"Brings back Memories"
October, 2016
I grew up watching this show every week. My Dad loved it. I am sure Daisy Duke helped a lot. Seeing the car and getting pictures was so great. I show them to everyone up ":North": here. I am a southerner by heart. Lived in Knoxville 2 years. Husband was UT graduate grad school. Followed Peyton and Lady Vols. I really enjoyed the museum. The staff was there Sept.23 doing last minute shopping. Maybe 24th. Loved it a lot.
Tip: Expect to go down memory lane. Young kids will not enjoy it maybe like us oldies. Enjoy!!!

"Our visit to Cooter's."
August, 2015
Loved seeing the things in the museum and getting our pictures taken in the general lee.
Tip: This is not a handicap accessible place. We had tickets to play miniature golf but it involves going up and down stairs which I am not able to do much of. Also stairs to get into the museum and go carts.

This was on my list of must-do things in Gatlinburg. It was a trip down memory lane for me. The kids enjoyed riding in the go karts on the indoor track. There were lots of memorabilia for sale including lots of hats and t-shirts. If you grew up watching the Dukes of Hazard, you should definitely visit!

Always loved the Dukes of Hazzard when I was growing up. Lot's of memorabilia from the show and of course a General Lee Dodge Charger to have pictures taken with. Fun and inexpensive.

To be honest, I did not expect much from this place; however, my two young adults and I had a blast! Though the minigolf didn't have the kind of huge spectacles some of those places do, it was still very fun to play. And the go cart slick track was great fun, even for a 25 year old! Prices were reasonable and the staff was very nice.

Our family enjoyed the tracks and putt putt! We also loved taking a trip down memory lane viewing all the Dukes of Hazard memorabilia! Take time to read the posters and history! Wonderful friendly service!

Stopped in for a brief look around the store. Bought a couple of souvenirs. My boyfriend is a Dukes of Hazard enthusiast so he really loved looking at the memorabilia.
