|About these ratings|
Nestled among the contemporary architecture of the Capitol Hill district is the Molly Brown House Museum, an eccentric example of Victorian life and design that no history buff should miss. Once the home of the "unsinkable" Molly Brown, a Titanic survivor and the inspiration for Kathy Bates' character in James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster of the same name, it's now a museum. You can tour the grounds and see numerous artifacts that once belonged to Brown and her family. According to one TripAdvisor user, "It was clear that the staff really enjoys their job. Our hostess was dressed in appropriate clothing for the period and she was full of information about the home and the furnishings."
The Molly Brown House Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m. (hours are subject to change depending on the season, so check ahead at the museum's website). Tours start every half hour and cost between $4 and $8, dependent on age.
