Thanks to our loyal customers we have continued growing over the past 36 years and now have the largest shop and museum in Nashville dedicated to not only Willie Nelson, but other pioneers of traditional country music as well. The Willie Nelson and Friends Museum contains one of the world's largest showcase displays featuring hundreds of personal items from Willie and his many friends. You'll see tributes to more than 30 other country music stars including Patsy Cline, Porter Wagoner, Dolly Parton, Faron Young, Mel Tillis, Webb Pierce, Marty Stuart, Connie Smith, Kenny Rogers, Dottie West, Ronnie Milsap, Jeannie Seely and many others. We're also Nashville's largest souvenir and gift shop. We offer "one-stop-shopping" for all of your Nashville and country music related souvenirs. Open 7 days a week 9:00 am until 9:00 pm.

We both love Willy so took the short drive out to see it. Was a nice, clean place with lots of things (mostly touristy crap) Aussies won't lugg around back home. All in all It wasn't that bad, just not enough of interesting items for us. Worth a drop by as dukes of hazzards are next door!

The Willie Nelson & Friends Museum & General Store is really a place where Willie Nelson fans can get absolutely anything Willie Nelson, as far as souvenirs are concerned. There is some other stuff, like Johnny Cash available, but mainly Willie. In the back is a Willie Nelson Museum, which I did not have time to go through. It is... More

Willie Nelson and Friends Museum and gift shop reminds me of gift shops in Vegas. It is over the top in a fun way.

We didn't go into the museum because you had to pay to go in & we didn't have the time but looked around the store & find many neat little things.

A good place to pick up some mementos of your trip to Nashville. It's just Willie souvenirs here, you can get pretty much anything related to country music.

I loved the variety in this shop - it was a good size store. The Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson tshirts were quite pricey. There were purses and jewelry in different parts of the store as well. I did not visit the museum. Overall this is a place where a tour bus would stop because there is something for everyone.... More

Hello Bulls, Thanks for visiting us while in Nashville.

We went to Willies and then stopped next door at Cooters while there. This is a typical gift shop, but they have pretty good prices on t-shirts compared to other places and neat souvenirs. There is a museum in the back of the store which looked pretty cool, but unfortunately we didn't have time to have the option to go... More

Thanks for visiting Heather. Hope you enjoyed Nashville as well. I'm a little confused by your "average" rating based upon what you said. We work very hard to be anything but average...

a great store full of Willie & friends items, lots of shirts, hats & some kooky folk art items which I loved. Not as big as it seemed on the website but still a good stop. Staff was very friendly
