Unsinkable – the Molly Brown House Museum

22 Mar

Unsinkable post cardWith less than a month left before the 100th anniversary of the steamship Titanic’s maiden voyage, I was invited to participate in an event at the Molly Brown House Museum in Denver. “Women of the Titanic” told their stories to those who toured the house museum, while I conversed with interested visitors in the gift shop, formerly the carriage house, behind the Browns’ House of Lions. It was a delightful evening. As usual, the folks at the Molly Brown House, with storytellers in period clothing, hosted a wonderful time. Fans of the Titanic and the Molly Brown story cannot get enough of it. New information and various versions surface, the more the story is told and shared with others.

Joyce Lohse signed books at the Molly Brown House Museum in March during the 100th anniversary celebration of the Titanic.

For people in the Denver area who wish to learn more about Mrs. Brown and her role as a survivor in the Titanic disaster, a visit to the Molly Brown House is a rare treat. Exhibits regarding the doomed ship are on display while the museum focuses on the anniversary. Special events and activities will be offered throughout the year. To learn more, visit their web site at http://www.MollyBrown.org, and be sure to take a tour of the house at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver, a couple of blocks from the Colorado state capitol. As with most Colorado history, the stories you learn there are fascinating and should not be missed.

    You have certainly developed an interesting niche, Joyce. I’d love to spend more time in CO to take advantage of some of your appearances.

    Thank you, Mary. It certainly has been an exciting adventure! Although I resisted coming to the “big city” from Colorado Springs exactly 20 years ago, I’ve found great ways to take advantage of the many resources, repositories, and historic sites available in Denver. It has grown well on me.
