A must-see for education on Denver's history. The Molly Brown House is easy to find, with reasonable parking on Pennsylvania. Tours are given regularly throughout the day. Head to the gift shop (behind the house) and check out all the Victorian-era treasures. A video about Margaret (Molly) Brown is available to watch while waiting for the tour. I was impressed by the knowledgeable tour guides, answering any and all questions thrown at them, while moving the tour at a good pace. Our guide told our group all kinds of interesting facts about Margaret Brown's life, while also clarifying common misconceptions about the Titanic survivor. We also got to learn many of the Victorian traditions. Admission is fair, and the tour is educational, but be prepared to climb a few flights of stairs. Make sure to use the restroom prior to the tour--you will not be able to rejoin if you leave.
A little piece of Denver's history, unearthed in the Titanic. – In Short
This three-story Victorian home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood used to be one of Denver's quaint little cultural secrets--the home where Molly Brown lived at the turn of the century. But the 1996 film "Titanic" made the museum a popular tourist site. Here, visitors can learn about the society matron's rise from rags to riches, her political activism and survival of the sinking of the Titanic.
