Long Description:
Exotic World's greatest asset is, however, museum proprietor Dixie Evans, the former "Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque." Not only will she guide you through the collection, she'll show you some moves, let you in on trade secrets, and tell you anecdotes about the performers honored in the collection. Visit during April to catch the annual Miss Exotic World pageant.
