So much history here. Dolly was one amazing woman. Don't miss her shower curtain. The house is tiny, but full of vintage furnishings

This was part of a tour we booked, so we walked thro it. Clearly it's emblazoned in city history and folklore, But not a well done exhibit ... Creek Street is a gem, this is (at best) cut glass.

We were beckoned in by the lady in period costume, paid the high admission ($20 for both of us), got a short background speech and were turned loose for a self-guided tour. Interesting place and Dolly certainly was an interesting and enterprising lady. Her house still generates and pretty good income.

A bit over priced for what it is. Interesting history but run down. $10 per adult should truly be a couple. The woman speaks to you when you walk in the door, then you are on your own to watch tv screens that give you "info" Lady asked for a tip before the tour began, then never gave an actual... More

Dolly's House Museum tells the story and history of the mining days and working girls at the time. Educational and fun! Don't miss out on this view of what is was like back then..
