“Just the good ole boys, never meaning any harm…”

If you remembered where that came from, then you should know what this review is about.

Located in the resort town of Gatlinburg, the Dukes of Hazzard Museum is worth checking for those who grew up watching the TV show, like myself. The museum is currently run by Ben Jones, who played Cooter on the TV show. It’s also called Cooter’s Place, but I always associate that name with the garage from the TV show.

The Dukes of Hazzard was a TV show that aired on CBS, in the late 70’s and early 80’s, on Friday nights. I know that, because I was one of those people who watched whenever it came on.

The place is primarily a gift shop, and episodes of the TV show shown in the background. It also has artifacts used in the show, like Boss Hogg’s book, along with photos taken from the days of filming. Plus displays of articles on some of the cast members, since the show ended its run.

A replica of the General Lee is there, where one can sit inside and have a photo taken, but it is not free. Around a $10 fee.There is also miniature golf and go-carts as well.

Overall, while not a must-see, it’s an okay place to check out, if you were a fan of the TV show back in the day. But if you weren’t, then don’t bother at all.
