Yes, it was interesting but do not compare it to the movie for you will be disappointed. It is an amazing piece of history.

Margaret Brown was an amazing woman, and it was really worth it to hear her story told from her home. The house itself was intricate and fun to see and we enjoyed the experience.

Her name was Margret not Molly. She had an 8th grade education and worked in a tobacco factory in Missouri when she was 14 and followed her brother to Leadville CO when she was 18. She wanted to marry a man who could support her and her parents but instead married a mining supervisor, JJ Brown for love. Two years later he hit the biggest vein of gold ever discovered in Colorado. That took care of that supporting her and her parents thing. She was a philanthropist who ran for the legislature 3 times before women could vote. Her house is located on Capitol Hill near the state house. On the ship returning Titanic survivors to NY she raised $10,000 from the rich survivors to help the poor survivors. She published the names of all the contributors and all those who didn't contribute. When she died of a stroke in NY she was in her 60s, spoke 4 languages, was learning Greek, was studying to be and actress and had traveled the world.

Nice piece of Denver history and a great chance to tour one of the mansions from the 1800's. If you are a fan of the 1960's Movie you will be quite surprise. I enjoyed the tour

We didn't know much about Molly Brown and this was a great way to learn a bit about her. The house is amazing and so central to Denver's history. The tour guides were great and very patient with questions and so forth. The tour itself was around eight dollars which seemed about right. It only lasts about 45 min so its a quick thing to do.

There is a small gift shop with all sorts of nick-naks and a short video you can watch before hand as a warm up. Probably can check this one off the list but really glad we went and our two boys 5 and 8 stayed pretty interesting so that was a plus.
