Our guided tour features a walk-through of the house, including three floors and 16 rooms. You’ll walk into the elaborate golden entryway designed to impress the Browns’ guests, view the library with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, experience the Browns’ private sitting area and bedrooms, and glimpse the living and working quarters of their servants. The museum’s collections include furniture, clothing, accessories, artwork, and more from the life and times of Mrs. Brown.

Permanent Exhibit

Payloads & Pirates – coming soon!

Our new Natural Resources center will focus on the man of the house, James Joseph Brown, and his extensive mining endeavors, one of which made the Browns millionaires. Learn how natural resource extraction is a large part of Colorado’s history and how mining impacted not only the mountains but Denver as a now thriving metropolis.

150 and Fabulous: Celebrating Margaret Brown’s Legacy

June 7th – August 20th
This year we are celebrating Margaret Brown’s 150th birthday! In honor of Mrs. Brown, we are highlighting her major lifetime achievements through mini exhibits inside the house. You’ll learn about Mrs. Brown as a suffragette, her philanthropic efforts held in her own dining room, and her work for the Red Cross in France during World War 1. You’ll view some of Mrs. Brown’s lesser seen dresses and accessories that illustrate her role as a fashion icon in addition to activist.
