Restoration and Capital Repairs Update

YES WE ARE OPEN! Beginning August 2015 the Museum will be undergoing the first of several restoration and repair projects. The Museum will remain open to the public for tours during the entirety of what will be the largest restoration of the Museum since the 1970s. These projects will minimally impact access to the Museum site as well as how Museum tours are conducted through 2016. We encourage you to visit the Museum to lend your support, witness the work first-hand, and, as always, learn about Denver's own Unsinkable Margaret Brown.

Capital Campaign Kick-Off!
Sept. 17. Historic Denver officially launched the public phase of its $2 million Investing in Action for the Places You Love Capital & Capacity Building Campaign.
