About Molly Brown House Museum

Historic Denver’s Molly Brown House Museum is committed to enhancing the city’s unique identity by telling the story of Margaret “Molly” Brown’s activism, philanthropy and passion through educational programs, exhibits and stewardship. By exploring the dynamic between past and present, we shape a stronger community for the future and inspire engaged citizens.

About the class

In 1912, Margaret Brown boarded a ship in France, rushing home to be with her sick newborn grandson. That ship was the Titanic. Join us on the anniversary of the Titanic's sinking for an interactive, virtual game—just like one that was played on board the Titanic. You'll test your listening skills while learning all about this famous ship and Margaret Brown.
