DENVER — July 18 is the Unsinkable Molly Brown's birthday — and on Thursday, a bobblehead was unveiled honoring her life and legacy.
The Titanic survivor moved to Colorado with her siblings when she was just 18 years old. In 1894, her family acquired the Victorian mansion that is now Molly Brown House Museum.
Five-hundred of the limited-edition bobbleheads will be sold for $20 each at the museum, which is located at 1340 Pennsylvania St. in Capitol Hill. Each bobblehead also includes a collector’s box with photos of Molly.
The bobblehead was produced exclusively for the Molly Brown House Museum and in conjunction with the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
“I visited the Molly Brown House Museum in the 1990s during a family trip to Colorado, and it was a great experience,” said Phil Sklar, co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. “When we realized that the ‘Unsinkable Molly Brown’ didn’t have a bobblehead, we reached out and made it happen. We think this is a great way to further carry on Molly’s great legacy.”
Happy 152 birthday, Molly Brown!
