Wish Upon a Rainbow at Dollywood's Fun and Interactive Museum
At just 5 feet tall, Dolly Parton might not be a physically imposing presence, but when it comes to her contributions to entertainment, she’s a giant of the field. From her numerous country music hits, to her roles in classic Hollywood films like Steel Magnolias, to her expansive theme park right here in the majestic Smoky Mountains, Dolly has been an inspiration to generations. One of our favorite attractions at Dollywood, just a short 25 minutes from our Gatlinburg hotel, is the Chasing Rainbows Museum, which features fun, interactive, and illuminating exhibits on the life and work of Dollywood’s remarkable founder. See Tennessee Mountain Home, a replica of the country cabin where Dolly spent her childhood years; School House, a single-room school just like the one Dolly attended, along with memorabilia like Dolly’s high school band uniform; Wear Dolly’s Wigs, a touch-screen exhibit that shows what you’d look like sporting Ms. Parton’s many famous dos; and Rotating Costumes, a display of dozens of Dolly’s costumes that spans decades. Like Dolly Parton, we at Zoder’s strive to make everyone feel welcome, and we’re proud to count Dolly among the most beloved of our fellow Tennesseans.
