It really is just a few glass cases with what was left behind over the years by the "ladies of the night" and their customers and a few t-shirts and mugs for sale. They have a bunch of creepy mannequin's in old shinny, 70's lingerie....More

Stopped in at the museum and Olivia gave a special tour on Saturday afternoon. The history was interesting - everything has been left in place since the FBI raid in 1988.

Not a lot to see. The history of the place was interesting; however, there were not many displays. If you are short on time, this is an attraction that could be skipped. We basically just walked through.

Of all the things we very much enjoyed doing in and around Wallace, perhaps our most memorable experience was visiting the Oasis Bordello Museum. It’s a former actual bordello and is preserved just as it was when it closed its doors in 1988. Our female...More
