Air conditioning was down, so the tour was free. Kinda glad, because I may have been disappointed. There were a lot of people so the tour guide simply let us roam the rooms and read the descriptions. She provided random interesting information. It was alright. Perhaps when you go, call ahead and make sure the A/C is working.

Step back into time in this bordello turned museum. Check out 'the girls" rooms and visualize the life of a bordello gal. Most of the rooms have the original furniture and I found it sad to see the baby cradle at the end of one of the beds. Go to Legend Jewelry next door to get a ticket and a... More

Loads of fun, but make sure you're ready to discuss what a bordello is with kids if you take them. It really was one and it's an inherently important part of the museum. Not a great huge full-day experience, but fun and engaging. Great for a local stop.

This was a quick tour of an old Bordello. The tour guide gave some interesting information, such as Miss Hattie still made the girls go to church every Sunday. We went into each of the rooms and I was given some information about each girl that worked there. Ticket prices were a little steep for only a 20 minute tour,... More

We really enjoyed the tour of Miss Hatties. It was interesting and a very well kept museum. The hostess was friendly and we were the only ones taking the tour. So we were able to get more one on one time to ask questions. The tours are at specific times and the tickets cost $6.00 per person. There is a... More

Visiting is by scheduled tour only and you have to go to the jewelry store below the bordello to get your tickets and meet for the tour. The tour guide was very informative and had a good knowledge of the bordello. Although some of the items displayed are not original many are and after 50+ years since the bordello closed... More

This place is preserved and authentic! It is a very realistic look back at the times and shows a lot of what life in those times was really like. The rooms remain as they were and you can walk through and see everything, along with photos and informational documents on the walls. A very interesting visit!

A lot of old time 1800s atmosphere. Food is very good. Prices are above average but well worth it. A great place for having a celebration dinner. Very romantic setting.

service is never that good and food is over priced, I know the décor is supposed to look old and dated but lighten things up a bit. I always try to avoid going here when someone brings it up.
