Dolly’s career and her bus have taken her all across the U.S. Now, the entertainment legend’s home-on-wheels is parked at Dollywood, and you can take a look inside. Dolly’s bus is parked in front of Chasing Rainbows museum in Adventures in Imagination®. Designed by Dolly’s longtime road manager, bus driver and friend Don Warden, and his wife Ann, the 1994 Prevost features hand-tooled leather from Germany on the sofa and chairs, cherry cabinets and brass fixtures. In addition to three bunks, the bus has two bathrooms and a shower. Dolly’s bedroom features three clocks--one set on Los Angeles time, one on Nashville time and the other on Dollywood time.
