This movie has created new interest in the Molly Brown House museum in Denver, according to the curator of museum. The Victorian house museum, which J.J Brown (the strike-it-rich gold miner) and his wife occupied, has been restored to its original grandeur to showcase her eclectic tastes. Photographs that the Brown’s had taken of the interior of the house were used as a guide. Original colors were determined by examining small microscopic chips of old paint. Even a piece of the original wallpaper was found and reproduced in Europe.
The city of Denver designated a four-block area near East 12th and Pennsylvania Street (which includes the historic Molly Brown house) as the Pennsylvania Street Historic District. Despite the diverse architectural styles and age, 53 buildings from 1040 to 1460 Pennsylvania remain in this district.
Whether or not you are a Titanic movie fan, a visit to the Molly’s "House of the Lions" will reveal much about her lifestyle and tastes.

At the Molly Brown House you can hear the stories while you tour her restored Victorian mansion. The staff is very avid about Maggie's life, and will give you an excellent perspective of life in Denver in Victorian times.
The museum is located in Capitol Hill which is a good walk from the downtown area. There are numerous coffee houses, shops and restaurants in the historic residential area. If it is like most day, enjoy a nice walk through the neighborhood, take the museum tour, and relax for a coffee or bite to eat. While eating you can swap your favorite "Molly Brown" story or make up a new one.
