"A neat bit of history"

This tour takes about a half hour. I opted to just do a "walk through" on my own -- which took me roughly eight minutes and it still cost $10. There is a lot of stuff packed into the home, neat dresses and such from that era. The one really fun thing to note (or ask about) are the flowers on the shower curtain!

It is a good glimpse at the red light district that was influential during the turn of the century in Alaska. It's a neat little tour if you find you have an extra bit of time and have done all that downtown Ketchikan has to offer, then this is an okay option.

I wouldn't think it would be entertaining for small kids (and there are things that shouldn't be tampered with) and it's a small home turned museum, so it's not a place with ample open-space for running.

There are narrow stairs, so strollers are not going to be able to get around well.

"Not for kids!"

It's my own fault for bringing my kids to this tour (after all, it's a tour of a red light district brothel), but I was misled by the tour guide who promised, 'there was nothing kids couldn't see here'. I thought it would be more historical, but instead it was very inappropriate for kids. It's not worth the $10 for adults either. Skip this attraction, and simply walk along Creek Street with the kids to see the pioneer-era buildings.
