Chasing Rainbows is a unique museum in Dollywood that tells the life story of Dolly PartonChasing Rainbows Museum

Chasing Rainbows!  It's something we all do from time to time.  We look  to the future with high hopes of making our wildest dreams come true.  Dolly Parton was always a "dreamer!"  This young lady had faith in her heart and the desire to make her dreams come true.   Believing in herself, her dreams, and the hand of God was all she needed to bring those childhood dreams to life.  Dolly Parton has fantasized about being a huge success  for years and has believed and achieved.  Taking the self-guided tour through her unique museum  located inside Dollywood is a fun, and exciting way to learn everything you want to know about this legendary performer.  

The tour begins with photos of Dolly taken with her many celebrity friends she's worked with throughout the years.   Next comes "the attic."  This is a junk room where Dolly has piled up her personal stuff from years back.  There's old home decor, things from her childhood days, and lots of stuff she's picked up but not using anymore.  Some things in this room are expensive, others are just plain junk.  While browsing around the room Dolly Patron comes to life through hologram photography to welcome you to the museum.  She welcomes guests and talks about her life and making dreams come true.
