In truth, we did not actually visit this attraction as we had already visited a brothel in Skagway. We took a peek inside but the $10 admission per person was a bit steep for a 15 minute visit in this small house. The house is...More

I had heard about this place, and so we decided to take the tour of the house. It was very interesting and humorous as how she had set up everything for the enjoyment of men

Be sure to visit “Dolly’s” restored original brothel home when visiting Ketchikan. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting this museum. Highly Recommended! The volunteer “ladies of the night” invite you to come in for a “quickie” off the boardwalk as you pass by. DO IT. GO IN...More

Before visiting Ketchikan, a lecturer on the cruise ship gave a history of Ketchikan and of the women who went to settle there. Dolly was the most famous of the brothel owners, but certainly not the only one. She made a fortune by providing the...More

This came as a free extra with one of our other excursions we booked on the cruise ship. Wouldn't of gone otherwise. But it was fun learning a lil bit of history about the place and seeing how they lived there...

This museum highlights the "brothel" era in Ketchikan. It was the house of the most predominant madam in town. It's situated on the boardwalk of Creek Street. It is very cluttered. So it is hard to get a real understanding of what life was like....More

So much history in this little museum, so much to see and read! Really enjoyed our visit here, the house is kept just about as it was many years ago. She was a colorful character!! Don't miss the shower curtain!

"That was the biggest waste of $20 ever" said my kiddo. $10 per adult to take a 5 min walk through a house, kids were free. You can learn about the "industry by reading varound signs around town. But enjoy the walk along the creek.
