The Molly Brown House Museum.

The Molly Brown House Museum (also known as House of Lions) was the home of American philanthropist, socialite, and activist Margaret Brown. Brown was known as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" because she survived the sinking of the RMS Titanic. The museum presents exhibits interpreting her life and that of Victorian Denver as well as architectural preservation. The house was built in the 1880s by architect William A. Lang, incorporating several popular styles of the period, including Queen Anne Style architecture. Today the home is owned by Historic Denver, Inc., and public tours are run daily for a fee.
