The Museum’s educational programming has become increasingly popular as Historic Denver is one of the only organizations with the capacity to travel to classrooms across the metro area. We have also become a go-to resource for teachers because of our ability to structure programs to fit classroom content and because we provide direct access to our full-time educator, who both schedules activities and facilitates them with the support of volunteers. With school budgets cuts, our programs, and the quality of our educational support, need to remain a valuable option for teachers. The Molly Brown House Museum has made a significant commitment to keeping our programs accessible. Currently, 50% of the schools served by these programs include students that receive free and reduced lunches, and nearly 20% of the schools have more than 25% of the student body receiving free and reduced lunch.
Since opening the Museum, Historic Denver has worked to save countless other Denver landmarks and increase public awareness of Denver’s unique historic structures. Historic Denver has a more broadly based mission and over the years has worked to provide direct preservation services to historic properties, offer technical assistance, advocate for threatened resources and serve as a voice for the preservation community.
