Molly Brown House Museum

Molly Brown House Museum

In 1970 local citizens joined forces to preserve the long-time home of Titanic’s most famous survivor. They organized as Historic Denver, Inc. and began a long-legacy of preserving Denver’s historic places. Today, you can visit the Brown’s opulent 1889 home, designed by architect William Lang with all the modern conveniences, including electricity, central heat and in-door plumbing. Through microscopic paint analysis, architectural research, and studying original house photographs from 1910 the house was finally restored to its original splendor. You’ll also hear the fascinating tales of Molly Brown’s incredible life, from instant mining-town wealth, to labor reform and the stages of New York.

We hope you enjoy our work.
