Molly Brown Gallery dedication at the Titanic Museum Attraction

March 22, 2012
Molly Brown Gallery dedication at the Titanic Museum Attraction


Visit the Branson Titanic Attraction on Thursday, March 22, 2012 to witness Margaret (Molly) Tobin Brown's great-granddaughter, Helen Benziger, dedicate the Molly Brown Gallery.

The Branson Titanic Attraction closed from January 16-19, 2012 to make room for this new gallery: The Molly Brown Artifact Collection. It's a brand-new, exclusive exhibit featuring many interesting items that belonged to the irascible, indestructible Unsinkable "Molly" Brown :

  • furniture
  • crystal glassware from Ireland
  • artwork
  • photographs
  • Titanic memorabilia
  • original costumes worn by Debbie Reynolds in the movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown, including the pale-green, elaborately beaded silk gown she wore while celebrating her birthday abroad in Paris
  • many more of Molly's treasures that were gathered from around the world to grace the Denver mansion she shared with her millionaire mining husband, J.J. Brown

It's exciting to have the extensive Molly Brown Artifact Collection at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Branson, Missouri – not too far from where Margaret (Molly) Tobin Brown was born (she was born in 1867 in Hannibal, Missouri).

Daylight Saving Time begins March 11, 2012

March 11, 2012
Daylight Saving Time begins March 11, 2012


It's time to SPRING-FORWARD!

Sunday, March 11, 2012 is when we change our clocks forward an hour. The Branson Fire Department would like to remind everyone:

  • to CHANGE the batteries in your smoke/fire alarms
  • to set your clocks forward one hour on Saturday night or Sunday morning
  • to push the TEST button to make sure your smoke/fire alarm is functioning properly. (We like that suggestion - stop reading right now and try it out on yours!)
  • to place smoke alarms in each sleeping room, on each level of the home and in common areas like hallways and stairwells
  • to develop an escape plan showing two ways out of each room in the home. Once developed, practice that plan with the entire family to the sound of the smoke alarm each month and gather at the designated meeting place outside the home

If you need help with your smoke alarm installation or placement, call your local fire department or if you live in the Branson area call the Branson Fire Department's Technical Services Division at 417-337-8580.

Be safe so you can visit often!
