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.

  • A really neat place to visit and run by some people who do an outstanding job. Tour was great and well worth the admission. If you have a weekend in Denver, work this in.

  • Very cool little piece of history. Very well preserved / restored home of someone who lived a very interesting (and well to do) life. Certainly worth an hour to puts around each room and let your mind wander to the stories of a time gone by. For the most part, restored and set up to display life in 1910. Super friendly and helpful staff and a nice little gift shop. Well done Historic Denver, Inc.
  • A truly fascinating experience! If you like period drama or history this is like stepping back in time. The recorded tour is informative and the resident historians are willing to answer questions and provide interesting details. The home's extensive restoration work has been meticulously documented with restoration stories presented along with historical facts about the home and it's several residents. I found the whole thing very informative and entertaining. Worth the price of admission!!
