Jim Morrison Apartment Tour

The tour of Cheri Amour is a must for any fan of rock legend Jim Morrison of "The Doors."

In 2003, Cheri purchased the apartment building in West Hollywood, California, which has become recognized as "The last U.S. home of Jim Morrison," lead singer of the band The Doors. The famous Rolling Stone interview was conducted here. The rock legend and poet resided there with his girlfriend, Pamela Courson, from 1970-1971 prior to moving to Paris, where he reportedly died of heart failure while in the bathtub, on 7/3/71. Although reportedly buried in Paris, Jim's spirit lives on at the building in West Hollywood (where a seance was held in 2004) and in the hearts of his fans worldwide. As an Elvis fan herself, Cheri realized the cultural and historical significance of this landmark building to all of the Doors fans.

In May 2004, Cheri opened up the property, including Jim's former apartment when vacant, for private or group tours. Take a self-guided tour around the grounds of the estate and learn never-before revealed anecdotes reminiscent of Jim and Pam's lives there. Relax on the patio, and visit the meditation garden. Tours are by appointment only.
