The Basics

She was known as the Unsinkable because of her determination to return to theTitanic’s wreckage looking for survivors—but Margaret Brown lived a life worthy of her place in history long before she helped lead rescue efforts aboard the famed ocean liner. A small-town girl from Missouri, she married a successful gold miner who struck it rich in Leadville, Colorado. Throughout her life, Brown used her family name and money to fight for causes such as children’s literacy, historical preservation, miner’s rights, and women’s suffrage. Today up to 45,000 Mile High City visitors annually come to her beautifully restored home to take a peek into how the belovedTitanic survivor lived.

Museum entry is by guided tour only; purchase first-come first-served tickets from the carriage house out back or get limited presale tickets online. If time is short, cruise by as part of a Denver sightseeing motor-scooter tour.

A Long and Storied History

After Brown’s death in 1932, her former Denver home became a boarding house for young men and women looking to start new lives in the American West—but by 1970, the home was scheduled for demolition. A concerned group of citizens banded together and formed Historic Denver to save the home, and its restoration was their first major undertaking. Today the museum is filled with elaborate wall coverings, fine art, vintage furnishings, and period pieces re-created with painstaking detail and historical accuracy.
