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" Margaret "Molly" Brown (Kathy Bates' character in the film, "Titanic,"), this museum offers a glimpse into Denver's history and the life of one of its most fascinating residents. On a guided tour of the house, you'll learn about Brown's experience aboard the Titanic, as well as her role in the women's suffragette movement and her endeavors in Colorado's mining industry.

Recent travelers described the tour guides as friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about history. Along with the personal history of Brown, you'll also hear about the house's renovations and artifacts.

The Molly Brown House Museum sits in downtown Denver's Golden Triangle area, just a short walk from the State Capitol building and Civic Center Park, or you can hop on bus No. 15. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4:30 p.m. From June to August, the museum welcomes guests starting at 9:30 a.m. Tours start every half hour; admission is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and $8 for children ages 6 to 18. To learn more, visit the Molly Brown House Museum website.
