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.

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!!!

This is a neat little place to stop by. My son liked seeing the General Lee (they do charge $5 if you want to get IN the car for a pic from your own phone) but they do allow you to stand just outside the rope for free and take a pic. This is a store with all sorts of Dukes of Hazzard paraphernalia. But it's also a museum on one side and it's pretty neat I must say. We maybe spent 20 minutes inside just looking around.

This was a complete let down. There was not much to the museum which was roped off and you could only look at it from afar. You could pay to have them take your picture next to the General Lee or give them $5 to take your own picture. The Go-Kart's were a let down we didn't even pay to go on them. Too many other fantastic Go-Kart places nearby that will put this ol Cooter's out of business. The old coot that was running the place rolled his eyes when he didn't think I could see him because I didn't get the name of the car right. I gave 2 stars because there were some neat souvenirs in there for Duke's of Hazard lovers.

I wanted to love this place, but I only liked it. The indoor go-carts go around a simple loop, we went elsewhere for go-carts. There is a ton of memorabilia and a real General Lee. We looked around for about 20 minutes for free.

So much memorabilia to see. They have go carts and such too for the kids. sometimes they have guest visitors. I was detained by Cletus Hogg. Super nice guy to hang and speak with for a few minutes and I imagine any other cast members that show up would be same. definitely a must stop - even for just 15 minutes to see all the cool memorabilia hanging around
