Good putt putt course with lots of memorabilia to look at. To our surprise we noticed a line so we decided to wait and see who was there. It was the one who played Cletus Hogg. Great guy, very friendly. It was an unexpected treat. We would go back for sure.

"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!!!

"Lots of "Hazzard" Stuff"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 19, 2018 NEW
Cooter's Place is really just a little "Dukes of Hazzard" gift shop with exhibits of the General Lee and other Dukes memorabilia, plus a themed go-kart track. We only spent a few minutes there, but it was a good trip down memory lane and a great place for a photo with the General.

Fun, worth looking around, met actor from the original show. Basically they sell items related to the original show with some things on display to look at. Spend about 15 minutes on avg.

TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed October 31, 2018
This location only has one of the 317 original General Lee's, but it's really cool, especially if you loved Dukes of Hazzard as a kid.... or an adult! Who DIDN'T like Dukes of Hazzard?!! The Nashville location, has more cars (Daisy's Jeep, Cooter's Tow Truck, Rosco and Boss Hogg's cars), but this location was really cool too. Tons of paraphernalia to see. You can even opt to have your picture taken in the General Lee for a small fee.
