Gothic horror authors come back from the grave to spook you this October

Versions of Victorian Horrors @ Molly Brown House Museum offered as in-person or at-home


Victorian Horrors @ the Molly Brown House Museum will be offered again this year with in-person and at-home options for the spooky experience.

Victorian Horrors is environmental theater presented by Castle Lion Development, set within the Molly Brown House Museum, 1340 Pennsylvania St. in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The in-person experience starts with a pre-recorded video transmission of a story from a Gothic horror author who has come back from the grave. This takes place onsite, and after listening to the tale, attendees are invited to tour the 14-room Molly Brown House Museum. It will be decorated by Denver’s authentic oddities dealers, The Learned Lemur and Atomic Folk Art, to create a Victorian cabinet of curiosities — creepy taxidermy, spiny specimens and rattling bones. The tours are primarily self-guided with audio narrated by specters from the past, but docents will be present.

A ticket also includes additional video transmissions of Victorian Horrors actors presenting tales that can be viewed before or after your visit.

Those who prefer the at-home version will have access to the pre-recorded video transmission of the story, which can be viewed from anywhere, but the ticket does not include access into the Molly Brown House Museum.

A different story and author will be featured each night.

This year’s stories include “The invisible Man,” “Frankenstein” and “La Llorona.” “La Llorona,” translated to “The Weeping Woman” in English, will be presented in both Spanish and English. The authors of these Gothic horror tales will be portrayed by local actors David and Julia Payne, Jim Hunt, Trina Magness, Josh Hartwell, Gabriella Cavallero and John Wittbrodt.

Victorian Horrors @ the Molly Brown House Museum is being offered on Oct. 16, 17, 23, 24, 29 and 30. Advance ticket purchase is required. Ticketed admission will take place every 20 minutes between 6 and 9 p.m.

Tickets for in-person Victorian Horrors cost $18 for non-member adults, and $16 for members, seniors and juniors age 6-18. This event is advised for ages 12 and up, per parental discretion.

Masks are required.

Tickets for the at-home spooky story access is $8 per household.
