About
This antique-filled Victorian house was the home of Margaret "Molly" Brown, not only a famous survivor of the Titanic, but so much more. Enjoy our 2022 summer exhibit, "Heroine of the Titanic" available to all guests. Explore on your own or join us for a guided tour. Entry to the Museum is every 20 minutes throughout the day. We strongly encourage our guests to purchase tickets in advance since we often sell out and hate to turn people away.

    Excellent museum about an amazing woman
    I had no idea what to expect when my friends and I decided kind of at the last minute to take a tour of the Molly Brown House Museum. I left the museum convinced that I needed to read more about Margaret Tobin Brown. What an amazing woman! Our tour guide was phenomenal. I could have listened to her tell stories for hours. Unfortunately I can't remember the guide's name, but she told us (hopefully I have this correct) that she has been affiliated with the museum since she was 12 years old and has been giving tours there for 50+ years! If you're trying to decide whether or not to visit this museum, DO IT. Opt for the guided tour as well.

    The Hisotric Molly Brown House
    We decided to do the Molly Brown tour and I'm glad we did. There is only street parking available, so we took an uber which turned out to be very convenient. I recommend doing research about Molly Brown before going as there is a ton of information to cover in the short, hour long tour. There is a gift shop on site. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly as well. If you have an interest in Historic homes, this would be a worthy stop for just the home itself.

    Is she really Molly????
    Our tour guide, Sam, made MARGARET Brown come alive! Who knew that the musical on Broadway AND the Debbie Reynolds film, the Unsinkable Molly Brown, which came out in 1964, would be the savior of this beautiful landmark which was scheduled to be destroyed? And that the writers of the musical changed Margaret Brown's name to Molly because Margaret or even Maggie was too difficult for rhyming in songs? A most worthwhile tour!

    Interesting...
    We were in Denver for a Convention decided to do the Molly Brown museum guided tour. The house was very interesting, but our guide for the tour left out many parts and stopped on the second floor. She gave us about 30 minutes of a tour. The museum is definitely worth touring, and from what the other reviews said there are lots of good tour guides. this should be on your list for Denver.

    Overall Excellent
    I look the docent =led tour, which I highly recommend. You can walk around all of many of the rooms and most of the rooms that are partially roped off. A wealth of information is imparted about Molly (Margaret) Brown and the times in which she lived. The house is a wonderful example of the gilded age Denver stone Victorians of which few are left.

    What an amazing woman!
    This museum was the whole reason for our trip to Denver. Our daughter chose the trip for her birthday instead of a party because she wanted to come to this museum! Margaret Brown was just such an amazing, impactful woman! Our daughter is named after her and I am thrilled that she (and I) could step foot in the same place that Mrs. Brown lived. It was an amazing experience for all of us and our son learned a lot. Our guide, Sam, was amazing and took the time to answer a lot of questions and talk to us after our tour was over! I cannot say enough good things about this museum and I am so glad that we were able to make a trip there! The house, itself, is gorgeous, as well! This is definitely worth a stop if you are in Denver!

    Please be very careful in this neighborhood.
    I'm sure this is a great place to visit based on other's reviews. But our experience getting to the house and the surrounding neighborhood, should give all a reason for caution. We were unable to use our pre-paid tickets because we were accosted down the street from the house. This was no simple matter as the person was threatening to kill us - there was no attempt to rob us - just came up to us and started to attack saying they were going to kill us. Thanks to Security from the nearby McDonalds, we were unharmed. I don't know what would have happened without the wonderful Security Guard who came to our aid.

    Interesting in So Many Ways
    The self tour was the only one available to us. Guided tours are not very frequent but are on a schedule so booking well in advance may be needed. There was lots and lots of information available at each room, but visitors can print info in advance to get acquainted with the home and the individuals who made it their home. I didn't know anything about Molly Brown previously, but she was definitely a character and a busy woman ahead of her time. Marriage gave her the boost she needed to live her dreams as she was not born into wealth. A very interesting personal story is part of this display of furnishings and architecture. Try not to miss this if you visit Denver. One caveat to keep in mind is that there is no parking specific for this museum. You will need to find a space on the street in front of it or around the block. Give yourself extra time for parking because it is a busy area.

    A worthwhile experience while in Denver
    Fun and informative experience. The interior has been thoughtfully reconstructed to provide a feel for what life must have been like during Molly Brown's era. Lots of interesting tidbits about her life before and after earning the moniker "The Unsinkable Molly Brown."

    Great museum except for parking ticket. BEWARE
    The molly brown museum was fabulous! We did a guided tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable about it. It was fabulous. The staff were all great. The house is amazing. BUT when we left after an hour everyone on that side of street had a parking ticket even though it said we could park there. The ticket was issued to every car on that side because it was the first Weds of the month and evidently a street sweeper does it job?? BUT no signage to tell you so. So the $50 fine hurt!

As a huge Titanic history buff, I was originally interested in seeing the Molly Brown House because of her connection to the ship. However, we learned a lot of other fascinating things about her family, her life and the causes that were important to her. Although the items in the house were not original, they were still of the time period, and the house itself is absolutely gorgeous...the woodwork and stained glass were reason enough to check it out!

I wanted to go inside but the others with me did not want to if there was a fee and it was too hot for them to wait outside. But stopping to see this building is worthwhile. It's of a type of construction no longer generally practiced, and it is hard to imagine this building not standing strong for centuries to come.

It was fun to fantasize for a minute about living there and all of the gorgeous potted plants I would have on the grand porches... and how Molly must have enjoyed it so much.

This showed up on a quick search while trying to figure out something to do before the flight home ... and it was well worth the brief detour on the way to the airport.

The house is well preserved and nicely set up. There were several folks ready to answer questions and I must say I learned quite a few things about Margaret Brown that I did not know ... or that the movie "Titanic" got wrong.

Please remember that in the time of COVID this place requires reservations and only allows eight (8) visitors every 20 minutes.

They did an excellent job with social distancing, there were only 5 people (including us) on the tour. The app was a wonderful resource, plus the docents inside are happy to provide more context and details. Ask about the wallpaper! We had plenty of time to enjoy all of the rooms and read everything about the exhibits. The gift shop is excellent! Parking is a little rough, so allow plenty of time to find a spot.

Staying in downtown Denver noticed the historic Molly Brown house on Google maps and decided I had to see it. They have discounts for students military seniors and children I brought an active military and student with me. Read the history of the home sadly it was auctioned off during the depression and most of the original furnishings were sold off many of them have been collected over the years the Denver historical society has done a beautiful job putting it back together. According to the information most of the doors hardware and trim are original and lots of the furniture has been brought back to the home.

We took our two kids, ages 9 and 11, as a field trip for their homeschooling. We watched a video at home before going to the museum which helped make connections during the audio tour. The audio tour is fantastic and kept us all interested in our surroundings throughout. The gal working in the carriage house was wonderful and knowledgeable and answered lots of our questions. I wish I could remember her name because she was a gem.

You need to have tickets in advance, but you can buy right on-line with your phone as you approach. There are usually tickets available. It's very nicely preserved inside and docents are available to answer questions. I think she actually lived here only about 10 to 11 years.

I have visited Denver several times in the last two years the Home was closed due to Covid, so finally happy to be able to tour and learn more about her family and legacy. Our tour guide was incredible--she has been affiliated with the museum since it opened (!) and made Margaret's accomplishments come to life. Also the architectural features of the home were interesting. We had been to the Titanic Museum in Belfast and appreciated her personal history of that time as well. There is an educator's discount if you are a teacher, too!

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 was the wonderful tour guides recreation of the lives of the family and of Margaret Brown in particular. She was also good at connecting to other events in Denver and Colorado during that period. I highly recommend a visit to the house.
