“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

This was a great museum. Loved the fact everything in it was all original right down to the wall paper. Would love to go back to Ketchikan. I also did snorkelling in Ketchikan and it was also amazing.

“Dolly's House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

It is like taking a step back in time, into a home filled with memorabilia from the 1920s through the 1960s, with clues to Dolly's "profession" throughout the museum. You may want to consider the age of any children with you though, or be ready for some interesting questions ;-)

“This was fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

We just happened upon the red light district by chance. This was fun. I was asked if I wanted to fill out a job application that the brothel was hiring. The staff was fun and great! They took their time and explained the entire area to us. I also suggest you take the married man walk along the river

“A reconstructed old house”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Sort of like stuff from Grandmas attic. Most of it not authentic, right down to the wallpaper! Certainly not worth walking in the rain!

“If You Have $10 to Blow, Why Not?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Let's be honest: this was kind of a joke.

The fee must have gone up, as we paid $10 a person for a 5 minute tour. The house is, for the most part, not in great shape. It's musty and dirty, and there doesn't seem to be much attempt at upkeep.

The videos are difficult to hear and pretty uninteresting.

It was raining, and we were trying to kill time. So, we did it. Would we do it again? Probably not.

The highlight was the condom shower curtain.
