The first ever exhibit by the National Roller Coaster Museum and Archive (NRCMA) is currently being housed at Dollywood, and will remain in place until September 16, 2012.

The exhibit covers a 1,250-square-foot area in the park's Heritage Hall, and boasts 20 displays covering the past, present and future of the roller coaster industry. It is open daily from 11am - 4pm, with entry being included with the price of admission to Dollywood.

Amusement Today reports on some of the items that are on display in the NRCMA exhibit, which include a roller coaster car from the Big Dipper roller coaster at San Diego's Belmont Park. A train from Dollywood's existing Thunderhead coaster is also on show.

The coaster-related items that make up the exhibit at Dollywood have been pulled from the NRCMA's archive in Plainview, Texas. No plans have been announced to put on the display at other theme parks in the US, but it seems likely that the display could be rotated onwards in 2013.
