    I'm sure fans of Molly Brown will get a kick out of this house. And I might say it has some unusual findings for the period. You get a guided tour that's informative & quite enjoyable. The only pictures you'll get are the exterior. This is one of those places, I'm glad it's being preserved, & I don't mind spending my money for a tour, but once you see it, no reason to return. We found street parking the day of our visit.

    An amazing, eye opening look into the everyday life of the upper class. Especially interesting is the very unique articles of underclothing, corsets and waistline measurement tools for women and little girls. Such as the starter corset for girls around 6 years old. Also the standard "fainting chair" at the top of the stairs for the women. The lower half of womens lungs never developed past their first corset. The upper lungs unable to fully expand with corset in place. Fainting was common. So were smelling salts. Incredible tour. A must see. Incredibly...Read More

    Be ware!!! Very disappointing! It's NOT a museum and you are NOT allowed to go in without a guide. I recently planned a visit to the "museum", but when I arrived, I was informed that you must be on a guided tour to see the "museum". And that the last tour started 10 min. prior. It was NOT stated on the website that you MUST be on a guided tour. I explained to the attendant that I probably wouldn't be able to get come to Denver (hadn't been there for 25 years), and that I wouldn't mind joining the tour in progress, as I was only a couple minutes...Read More

    Really cool house museum with lots of different events and exhibits so there is always a reason to come back. Cool little gift shop in the rear of the building as well.

    When I was 10 yrs old, we were stationed in Denver. My Mom kept me home from school one day and we visited the Molly Brown House. I NEVER forgot that day. It was amazing. We didn't have a tour guide, it was apparently during the day, and we roamed around that house for what seemed like hours. I don't RECOMMEND keeping your children home from school. Don't worry, I WENT ON TO COLLEGE....LOL. I do, however, recommend The Molly Brown house tour for your bucket list.

I explained to the attendant that I probably wouldn't be able to get come to Denver (hadn't been there for 25 years), and that I wouldn't mind joining the tour in progress, as I was only a couple minutes late. The attendant refused to consider the situation and was quite snotty about it. No where on the website does it state that you must be on a guided tour in order to see the museum. If I had known this, I would have altered my plans (to pick up my friend at the airport) to ensure more time to get there. As it was, I ended up spending $85 on a rental car just to see the MB house and was not allowed in. In addition, the "museum" store was 95% on the Titanic, and only a handful of books on Molly Brown herself. This was a total bust... if I ever get back to Denver, which I doubt I will, I won't have the Molly Brown house on my list of sites to see.... VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!
