Historic Denver saved the Molly Brown House from demolition in 1970, and has operated it as a House Museum since then. Proudly it is one of only a handful of historic sites dedicated to Women’s History. The Museum interprets and preserves the legacy of Margaret “Molly” Tobin Brown’s life so that current and future generations may understand and appreciate the social, economic, and political aspects of Victorian life in Denver. Enjoy a tour or one of the many interesting and entertaining events offered at the museum and know that you are supporting Historic Denver’s mission and ensuring the Molly Brown House’s future.
