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.

Tours are required to view the home and tend to fill early. The docents are well informed and share their love for the home and history of the area. Parking is very hard to find in the neighborhood so grab it while you can. We enjoyed a short stroll through the tree-lined community before our tour. Several beautiful homes in the Capitol Hill area worth seeing.
So inspiring. I had no idea the amazing story behind Margaret Brown but our docent Lizzie was excellent. She shared all the fun and interesting facts of a woman ahead of her time. Because of what I learned about Ms, Brown from Lizzie, I can call Margaret Brown a hero, one of my favorite female heroes from history.
