"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.

Loved the show. Was a teenager and had everything to entice you. Hot car, Daisy, the boys, and corrupt officials. Dreamed many time of racing around in the General Lee down those country roads. This place has a lot of show memorabilia and you can learn some Hazard lore. Lots of souvenirs to everyone's taste. Even a General Lee on display. Has an indoor putt putt course and go cart track inside. Didn't really check them out as I was more interested in checking out the store. Met a nice Veteran behind the counter and chatted for a while on old war stories. If you ever liked the Dukes of Hazard you've got to check this place out.

Our kids enjoyed the go kart racing track. If you're a Dukes of Hazzard, this is a must see while in Gatlinburg. It's free to check out the store with fun merchandise including bumper stickers and t-shirts.

We did mini golf and Go-Karts. The whole time we did the golf there was trivia about the show posted on all of the walls. The go-kart track is small but it was just three of us racing so it was good.

We thought it was a museum with some of Duke of Hazzard items, and it actually a small go kart place and miniature golf and small shopping for trinkets
