Oasis Bordello Museum

Preserved as it was in 1988 -- not 1888 -- when its occupants fled an impending raid. Learn the Madam's favorite video games, and what the prostitutes were eating for dinner.

Oasis Bordello Museum

As of June 2021 closed ... permanently according to a couple locals. This was the primary reason we got off the highway, but the town is a gem architecturally.

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!
