At Molly Brown House Museum you'll get a window into the life of the famous philanthropist and activist who survived the sinking of the Titanic. Molly Brown's home is also a great example of Victorian architecture and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. Originally built in the 1880s, the house was bought by Molly's husband, James Joseph Brown, in 1894. After Molly's death, the home was sold for a fraction of its cost due to the Great Depression, and was set for demolition by 1970. However, locals incorporated as Historic Denver, Inc., raised funds, and restored the house to its original glory. Now, the museum hosts more than 45,000 visitors each year and offers both on- and off-site academic programs. Note that admission is by guided tour only, and tour tickets are sold in person on a first-come, first-served basis, unless you're with a group of ten or more. Molly Brown House Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

I have visited this lovely house more than once. This time I took a docent tour, which lasted just about an hour. They also offer self-guided tours. The tour was educational and interesting. They have a really good gift shop in the carriage house. Parking is on the street and a little challenging but possible within a block or two.
The Molly Brown House Museum is a lovely place to go if you are in Denver. The house is bigger than it looks and everything is kept nice and orderly. The displays and interior overall contain a combination of original and restored segments that leave the house almost exactly as it was when it was first built. My sister and I took the 1 hour tour so we could hear more about Margaret Brown, the former owner of the house and survivor of the titanic. It was nice to hear about someone with such a long and wonderful history and walking through the house gave us a great feeling of what kind of people lived in it. I'm not one for too much history compared to my sister, but even I thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent inside. The house is beautiful and the little blurbs of information regarding everything in it is very useful. We thought we would spend about an hour here but ended up staying for four. It was an amazing experience and I hope to bring the rest of my family to come see it next time we visit.
