Named one of Denver's Best Smaller-Scale Museums in 2011, the Molly Brown House Museum cultivates curiosity with restored 20th-century architecture and a glimpse into the life of American activist Margaret Tobin Brown. Step into the house-shaped time machine and explore an authentic Capitol Hill mansion decorated with Victorian-era accouterments and carefully preserved steam-powered girdles. Through historic paint analysis, architectural study, and photographic research of the original 14-room residence, the museum reflects the lavish glamour of turn-of-the-century wealth. Throughout the day, guides lead 45-minute tours through rococo rooms, including a gilt foyer illuminated by stained-glass windows, parlors sporting polished tea sets, and a library lined with James Patterson novels stuffed inside first-edition Sherlock Holmes covers.
Museum docents pepper standard tour-guide language with obscure facts about the home and its outspoken and self-motivated owner. Nicknamed the Unsinkable Molly Brown after surviving the sinking of the Titanic, this Colorado socialite rose to prominence from humble beginnings as the daughter of a humility teacher in Hannibal, Missouri. Brown campaigned for the rights of miners and women as a Progressive political activist and traveled the world to satisfy her insatiable wanderlust and comprehensive passport-stamp collection.
