“Excellent Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

We visited this Museum on recommendation of a friend who'd visited. It is well worth the small admission fee to get in. The house has been beautifully restored as near to the original condition when Molly lived there with her family. The guided tour lasted approx 1hr, it is a fascinating insight into Molly's life and how she ended up on The Titanic.
The gift shop is charming with lots of Titanic related gifts and collectibles.
No photography allowed.

“Add to your must do list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

What a great little museum/tour. If you're touring around Denver this is a MUST. They do a wonderful job of painting the picture of what it would have been like to live in Denver 100+ years ago. Lots of fun facts too.

“Great piece if history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012 via mobile

We loved it! We visited this museum in Dec and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was very informative although she did talk very fast. It was like walking back into time. The house is beautiful and we found the gift shop to be reasonably priced. We loved the entire experience!

“Excellent tour guide.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The woman who gave us the tour of the house clearly loved her volunteer job: turns out her mother was one of the people who helped to save the house in the first place. She couldn't have been more informative or entertaining. Though an airplane pilot by career (a fitting choice to showcase feminist, independent Molly Brown's house!) our guide's passion in sharing Ms. Brown's part time home and full time life with us made her nearly as fascinating as her subject matter. The home has been lovingly restored with many of the original pieces of furniture donated back to the project. As always, it is fascinating to see how the 'other half' lived - even when the standard of living seems primitive compared to today. I came away with a new appreciation of the role Molly Brown played in society and the world of that time. I even learned that she never actually was known as"Molly!" Kathy Bates played her beautifully in Titanic, injecting her with a strength of character and presence that dominated the screen whenever she came on. I wouldn't be surprised to learn Ms.Bates was first a visitor to the Brown house in Denver and became inspired there to do the movie role such justice...
