We went to Miss Laura's first thing when we got to FT Smith and were greeted by a very friendly gentlemen who was very knowledgeable about the history of not only the house but of the town. He pointed us to several things to do in FT Smith and he did not steer us wrong. This should be your first... More

The staff at times are very friendly but one must remember that some of them are older volunteers and some of them need to learn customer service skills. The day my family and I had visited the lady was rude but she may have had a bad day is what I thought. I try to look at everything in a... More

This place was super interesting and fun. The tour guide was nice and very knowledgeable. We had our 9 year old with us but they worded everything in a way that it gave you lots of historical information, but didn't leave your child asking uncomfortable questions LOL. The place is just beautiful too. Love it ! A must stop if... More

We enjoyed the very informative free tour as well as the free goodies we received. We learned a lot about the history of this former bordello and Fort Smith in general. I'm not sure how all the information would be communicated to a group with children. The only disappointment was that the upstairs was closed that day, so we couldn't... More

This is the only brothel on the national historic registry. The volunteers are well informed and very nice. Most furnishings etc are still here. Loved this little known museum.

The Bordello has an interesting history. Now used as a visitor center. Our group of travel leaders enjoyed the show on the history of the hotel The pie was the best of the trip.

This one brothel is now restored to its old glory and has been made into a unique visitor's center. We've never had a guided tour of a restored, period museum, regardless of what it was and then at the end of the tour been given the brochures and tour advice about what else is available in the Fort Smith area....

We were on a bus trip, on our way to Memphis. We stopped at Miss Laura's on the way through town. It doubles as an attraction and the Arkansas Visitors Center. The volunteers that work there were well versed in the history of the house. The "Madam" explained the history of the house from the late 1800's to it's demise... More
