Chasing Rainbows Museum
Country music and Dolly Parton always come to mind when you think of the great state of Tennessee. If you want to take your love of country to the next level, then visit Dollywood, a theme park owned by country singer Dolly Parton. One of our favorite attractions in Dollywood is The Chasing Rainbows Museum, which was created to share her decades of dreams and to inspire others to dream. The museum features interactive and behind-the-scenes collections, stories and memorabilia from Dolly’s life and career. Located in the Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, the museum is twenty-five minutes from our Gatlinburg hotel. It's definitely awesome seeing where Dolly came from and how she rose in her career and changed country music with her ambition. Some notable exhibits includes Dolly’s Friends, which showcases several photos of Dolly’s celebrity friends; the Wear Dolly’s Wigs exhibit where you can use a touch-screen camera and view pictures of yourself on screen with Dolly different wig styles. There is also a listening station to listen to Dolly’s music and a rotating costume room that showcases all of Dolly’s costumes throughout her career. Dolly’s former tour bus is stationed in front of the museum, where visitors can get on the bus and take pictures as if they are touring with the great Ms. Parton. After your day with Dolly Parton, head back to our Gatlinburg hotel to freshen up for a fun night in town for dinner!
