  • Cozy and kitschy, Dolly's House -- the home office of one of Ketchikan's most successful female businesswomen -- is open for self-guided tours. The owner -- who earned up to a hundred times a day more than the men working in the area -- served up watered down drinks and, um, other distractions, turning her last trick in her seventies and living comfortably for two decades after that. Her possessions, furnishings, and some rather personal items are well-displayed here, and videos throughout the house help tell Dolly's story with additional photos and factoids. A fun twenty minutes, easily within walking distance of the cruise ship pier.
  • Fun place to visit for some colorful local history. The girls who work there are cute but push a bit hard for tips for selling you an entrance ticket. The tour itself is done by use of audio equipment running on a loop at each point of interest within the house.
  • Come learn some fun local history
  • That fishing pole rentals right outside Dolly that is easily accessible
  • Not worth to see
