The tour was interesting enough but the admission price was a bit steep for a 20 minute tour. Nicely narrated by the guide but the brothel quarters toured were pretty much similar to other Klondike frontier towns. Found the downstairs bar room just as interesting.

We were greeted by a very talented young woman dressed as a "madam" and we're take upstairs for a champagne tour of the brothel. Adult entertainment for sure, practically everything she said was a play on words and she interacted with the tour very well....More

$10 tour. Very entertaining. Like 5 tours per day. 20 minutes long. You walk upstairs and through a few rooms. You also get a souvenir red garter to keep. There is also a longer 2 hour walking tour that you can do.

Only 20 minute tour but entertaining. The girls who give the tour are terrific and naughty! Love seeing the original wall paper still on the walls

The tour guide was funny. Lots of puns. Not much to the 'museum'. I feel it could have been expanded some but there really isn't much to the whole building!

We were there last August during a cruise celebrating our granddaughter's 21st birthday. This place has THE BEST Bloody Mary ever!!! Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Wish we could visit more often!!

Interesting place. They try to keep a real period mood. There is a tour for the brothel that is humorously promoted. Food is ok; beer is excellent. It's very touristy, but fun when you're tired of shopping.

This was part of a cruise ship multi site tour and it was very good. We enjoyed a refreshing beverage upon entry and proceeded upstairs to an authentic and well preserved establishment. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and witty. Unfortunately the wait was too long...More

No The train ride I hear takes most of your time and there was a long line to enter and site even for a beer.

Just go to the Red Onion and find out when the next tour is....they start about noon. They meet you and you pay ($10 ) on the ground floor and the tour is upstairs in what is left of the brothel. I was on the noon tour... More
