Homeschool Days

Homeschool Days offer non-traditional students the same opportunities to come visit the museum as our more traditional school visitors. Homeschool Day programs include a specialized tour and hands-on activities. Homeschool Days at the Molly Brown House Museum take place from 9:30-12:30.

January 17—A Servant’s Life
Learn what life was like for the men and women who were servants of the Brown family. We will explore the house through their eyes, see where they would have lived, and learn more about the individuals who worked in the home.

May 14—Historic Preservation
1340 Pennsylvania Street nearly became a parking lot until a group of historic preservationists stepped in. Learn what it took to save the house, make your own historic buildings, and see some of the other buildings in and around Capitol Hill that have withstood the test of time and urban renewal.

September 25—J.J.’s Story
We all know about Margaret “Molly” Brown, but what about her husband JJ?  Learn about JJ’s life in the mine industry, the history of mining in Colorado, and how mineral wealth changed the Brown’s future forever.

Space is limited. Advanced registration required for all Homeschool Day programs. Admission is $10 per child, adults are free. Siblings may attend for free, however, if they wish to participate in the activities and take-home components of the program they need to be registered. To register, email education@mollybrown.org or call 303-832-4092 x 20.
