Implementation of an interpretive video and interactive kiosks on the life of Margaret Tobin Brown and the ways in which she was shaped by the social and cultural movements of her time.

The Molly Brown House Museum requests $121,000 of the $204,845 needed to produce Molly Brown: the Biography of a Changing Nation, a new permanent exhibit that includes interpretive panels, interactive multimedia kiosks and a short documentary film. The goal of this project is to use the story of one woman’s life to explore the significant changes Americans experienced between the late 1860s and the 1920s. As one of the most visited historic house museum’s in the West, this project marks an important step in the Museum’s ability to not only tell Margaret Brown’s story but to explore complex humanities issues that are deeply tied to important moments of change in the American story.
