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.

  • The Margaret Brown house is set up very much as it was when the Brown family lived in it. The museum has acquired back many things that were sold off in the 1930’s. The best part of the visit for me.....  more

  • I love when places offer a college student discount!! Molly Browns house self guided tour was good although I think more interaction with the house itself might help. They had boxes with information and items you could touch and a listening tour where your phone would talk you through things but it didn’t suit how I like to see museums. Other then that everything was great and I like the very unique items in the gift shop.
  • Great little taste of the past without feeling sterilized or distant. It was fantastic being able to walk through the house as if I were a guest and not a tourist. Buy tickets online a day in advance or risk not getting in at all! Toilets are available at the register but not in the house itself, so plan accordingly. Gift shop was a fun little stop afterwards. If you wind up having to wait to get in (as we did) there's a comfy little local coffee shop at the end of the block where you can relax until your timed entry comes up.
