A bit over priced for what it is. Interesting history but run down. $10 per adult should truly be a couple. The woman speaks to you when you walk in the door, then you are on your own to watch tv screens that give you "info" Lady asked for a tip before the tour began, then never gave an actual... More

Dolly's House Museum tells the story and history of the mining days and working girls at the time. Educational and fun! Don't miss out on this view of what is was like back then..

We were to late to get in the museum but did some reading about the area. Lots of history in this small area. Famous house back in the day.

Though Dolly's was closed for tours during the 4th of July Parade, and we were unable to take the tour, we were able to peek inside the main door. I'll just bet this is a fun little tour to take. The cost was about $10. The ladies were in 'costume' as well.

An entry fee (think it was $10 or $20) made us feel that Dolly's House Museum was a little bit of a tourist trap. On the other hand Dolly's 'history' is interesting and walking Creek Street is somewhat entertaining as one gets to walk along the meandering creek and stores for tourists.

Spent time in Dolly's House after being welcomed by a volunteer who made us laugh and that encouraged us to go in. It only cost $7.50 for seniors! It was very interesting to see how the women survived on Creek Street - you have to admire them for the choices they were forced to make. Worth a visit.

Greeted by a lady at front desk who gave a brief history of Dolly and the house and concluded by asking for a tip. The house itself is an interesting part of history but probably needs some repairs (water damaged walls). The original furniture is still in the house. Museum is a stretch to call this place. Not sure if... More
