The Molly Brown House Museum Needs You!
Apply now to become a volunteer at the Molly Brown House Museum. All new volunteers are asked to complete a training that includes tours of the Museum focusing on original artifacts and restoration, discussions with current volunteers on Brown family history and how to create a tour, as well as emergency preparedness and museum basics.
Molly Brown House Museum volunteers are interested in history and enjoy working with a diverse range of people. Volunteering is a wonderful way to meet others who share interests and to spend time in one of Denver’s most prestigious and authentic Victorian homes. Volunteers receive complete training, free parking and many other benefits.
Apply to volunteer at the Molly Brown House Museum below and we will contact you about the next steps!

Volunteer docents lead groups through Margaret Brown’s home and tell about the life of this remarkable woman and her times. The museum’s staff provides on-site training with topics including the life of Margaret Brown, Titanic, group management skills, and public speaking. Docents should enjoy learning and teaching about history and like working with people of all ages. Docents must be over 16.
Our gallery guides assist guests as they follow self-guided tours of the house. This involves helping guests find their way, assisting with our digital guide, answering questions related to Margaret Brown, Titanic, and the house, and safeguarding the objects and the house itself.
Our events volunteers assist both behind the scenes and working directly with our guests at a wide variety of functions. Volunteers do everything from preparing the house museum for events to leading guests through the house visiting the spirits of horror writers during Victorian Horrors. Events generally take place in the evenings or on weekends. This is the most flexible role as events are throughout the calendar year.
Greeters (Summer Volunteer Role)
We envision our greeters to be folks who are comfortable talking with the public and willing to answer questions. Our greeters prepare our guests for their visit before they enter the museum by going over rules and assisting with our digital guide. While Greeters get questions about the House or Margaret, they also help with questions to relate to parking, restaurants and other activities in Denver.
Pages (Summer Volunteer Role)
During the summer months of June, July and August, students between the ages of 10 and 16 help guests find their way, answer questions, and support longer serving volunteers in the Museum. Pages should have an interest in history and enjoy working with people of all ages.
