The stories are awesome!! You have a madam or one of her girls take you on a tour of Dolly's house (cost is $10 per person) and the regale you with some of the stories of the notorious Dolly's House and Creek Street. Very entertaining!!

A small house which used to be a house of ill repute run by one lady. You are greeted by a woman dressed in appropriate costume at the door, but she does not go around with you. Only takes about 10 mins. to go through.

Dolly’s was a brothel until the 1950’s and is now a museum to the “oldest profession”. Done in a tasteful way and at the same way extremely informative this was $10 well spent and the little talk by the curator at the beginning also well...More
