This was our second visit to Ketchikan. We didn't tour Dolly's house the first time, but I'd wanted to. My husband had some business to attend to so I had a couple hours alone when we reached Ketchikan. I knew just how I was going to spend them, and part of it involved taking the tour of Dolly's house!

Definitely take the tour of this house and learn some interesting facts. View the employment application posted on the first floor hallway, see the photos and learn Dolly's story as well as about life in Ketchikan and laws governing prostitution there. You'll find this stop truly memorable!

Miss Dolly was one of a kind and her house is fascinating. The shower curtain in her bathroom is decorated with some very unusual "flowers". Make sure you check out her going out of business posters.

This was a great little museum on Creek Street. The hostesses are entertaining and the history of Dolly and her house are worth the 30-45 minutes it takes to really see the house. So glad my friend and I stopped by and got the 2 for $15 admission. Loved that the bathroom is authentic to the time period. So many... More

Dolly's gives an insight into bygone days. It is a little overpriced and will only occupy 15-20 mins of your time in Ketchikan. The situation of Dolly's set on raised boardwalks on Creek Street, reflects the era and has other interesting places around it such as Sam McGee's where you can get some unique food stuffs and genuine Alaskan gifts....

VERY interesting take on an era long since past. The walk through the house and seeing all the interesting , shall I say, artifacts was mind boggling. The condom shower curtain was pretty impressive as well as knowing of Dolly herself.

Thought the $10 admission was a bit steep but the tour was well worth it. Dolly's story is interesting and being in her house & seeing her things brought the story to life. Recommend!

Dolly’s house is interesting in the sense that it gives one an idea of what the business was all about ! It is essentially a small house with one bed room on the second floor. The furniture and photos are of the period and so one gets some idea of the place. However to see the house should not take... More
