Less a museum than a souvenir shop with a few dusty exhibits in a big back room, this tourist site for die-hard Willie fans features many of his old guitars, gold and platinum records, movie posters, and even his pool table. It's a hodgepodge that includes areas devoted to fellow Outlaws Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Kris Kristofferson, as well as an extensive collection of B-movie Western star Audie Murphy's memorabilia. Unexpected finds, like a ticket stub from Elvis Presley's final concert, can be jarring. The museum displays are tucked behind saloonlike doors of a gift shop that hawks everything from shot glasses, T-shirts, and swizzle sticks to feathery dream catchers and dolphin figurines. Allow 20 to 30 minutes.
