Molly Brown House Museum Tours and Activities

star-4.5
12 Reviews
Molly Brown House Museum
Visitors may know Margaret “Molly” Brown in association with the RMS Titanic, but there was much more to her life than the ill-fated voyage for which she became famous. An activist, suffragist, and philanthropist, Brown’s spirit lives on through educational tours, exhibits, and programming inside her restored historic Denver home. 

The Basics 
She was known as the Unsinkable because of her determination to return to the Titanic’s wreckage looking for survivors—but Margaret Brown lived a life worthy of her place in history long before she helped lead rescue efforts aboard the famed ocean liner. A small-town girl from Missouri, she married a successful gold miner who struck it rich in Leadville, Colorado. Throughout her life, Brown used her family name and money to fight for causes such as children’s literacy, historical preservation, miner’s rights, and women’s suffrage. Today up to 45,000 Mile High City visitors annually come to her beautifully restored home to take a peek into how the beloved Titanic survivor lived. 

Museum entry is by guided tour only; purchase first-come first-served tickets from the carriage house out back or get limited presale tickets online. If time is short, cruise by as part of a Denver sightseeing motor-scooter tour.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Molly Brown House Museum is a must for history fans—especially of the Titanic. 
  • Military members, teachers, and students receive discounted admission; children six years old and younger are admitted free. 
  • During summer, the museum can be very hot inside. Bring a hand fan if you have one.
  • The museum is a multistory Victorian home and thus is not fully accessible. Call ahead for details.

How to Get There
The Molly Brown House Museum is located at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver’s Capitol Hill district. On-street parking is available throughout the area, or park in the Cultural Center garage five blocks away. The museum is easily accessible by RTD light rail and buses 0, 10, 15, 16, and 52.

When to Get There
The museum opens at 10am Tuesday through Saturday and 12pm Sunday, with Monday and extended hours in summer; last tour is at 3:30pm. Admission is by guided tour only. Tours start every half an hour, but some tour times may be sold out or unavailable. Hours may vary and the museum is closed on major holidays, so contact the museum to confirm available tour times.

A Long and Storied History 
After Brown’s death in 1932, her former Denver home became a boarding house for young men and women looking to start new lives in the American West—but by 1970, the home was scheduled for demolition. A concerned group of citizens banded together and formed Historic Denver to save the home, and its restoration was their first major undertaking. Today the museum is filled with elaborate wall coverings, fine art, vintage furnishings, and period pieces re-created with painstaking detail and historical accuracy.
