Bordello Museum

Since the bordello closed so recently (1988), it was a fun, nostalgic flashback as well as history lesson, since all the "artifacts" from that year were lying around. There was a People magazine and the cover story was Baby Jessica in the well! Only $5 - definitely recommended.

Oasis Bordello Museum

This was a working bordello up until 1988. The women left everything behind to escape an FBI raid. Nothing has been moved since! Everything is just the way it was left in '88 from the bedrooms to the kitchen! This is a very unique and rare insight into the world's oldest profession!

Whore House - Now a museum

You gave a good tribute to the Wallace stoplight, but you missed the real attraction. I grew up in the area, and until 1992 there was a fully functional, real life whore house in Wallace, Idaho, just like in the movies, complete with a menu. The Feds raided the whole valley in 92 and the place was shut down, but it is now a museum.

[Mark Wasson, 12/10/1997]

Wallace is a town of marvels. The CofC hands out a walking tour guide that will direct you to, among other things: the Prostitution Museum; a railroad depot built with Chinese bricks; Elk tracks in a city sidewalk; the Pulaski monument, which honors the 1910 fire hero who saved 37 of his men by leading them into two old mine tunnels nearby.
