ABOUT OUR EVENTS

Molly Brown House Museum

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.

re: Denver Forums

Historic Denver hosts re:Denver Forums free and open to the public every other month.
Regarding Denver is a forum series dedicated to issues surrounding Denver’s built environment, its past, present, and future. Our 2017 forums will be held in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Locations vary.

The forums are intended to help the community understand the forces impacting our built environment, including development pressure, design standards, the real estate market, existing neighborhood character and more.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page for invitations.

Select past forums are available on Historic Denver’s YouTube Channel.
