We got free passes from our tour, and since I was both uninterested and we had a stroller, my wife went in for the "Dolly Experience." Which wasn't much - she was a prostitute, business was brisk, she worked hard and she perished. Whole thing...More

A small house which used to be a house of ill repute run by one lady. You are greeted by a woman dressed in appropriate costume at the door, but she does not go around with you. Only takes about 10 mins. to go through.

Interesting find on Creek's street with good old Dolly. She had great imagination with an intuitive art for business. Everything is stuck in time. Please ask about the shower-curtains' flowers when you visit.

If you have time be sure to check this place out. A product of the gold rush era, you will find it very interesting. @cruiseplannersjbr
