Brown Palace Hotel – Denver, Colorado

“Affairs of the Heart” Tours

Brown Palace Atrium Lobby Historic tours of Denver’s venerable Brown Palace Hotel focus on “Affairs of the Heart” during February. Oh, the tales Debra Faulkner, hotel historian and archivist, has to tell. After 118 years the “Brown” reveals stories of intrigue, romance, love triangles and even murder. Public tours are offered every Wednesday and Saturday at 3pm and last approximately 75 minutes. Tours cost $10/person, reservations are required. Children must be 10 years of age.

Besides “Affairs of the Heart” and general history tours, specialized  themes include a presidential tour (Every U.S. president  since Teddy Roosevelt in 1905, with the exception of Calvin Coolidge, has visited The Brown Palace.), an architectural tour and the ever-popular ghost tour given in throughout October. Groups of 5 or more must make arrangements for a private tour. Private tours can be arranged for those requiring a time outside of the normal scheduled tours.

brown-palace-lobby-teaI suggest making reservations for Afternoon Tea before your tour. Served in the eight-story atrium lobby the traditional afternoon ritual includes tea sandwiches, scones with Devonshire cream shipped directly from England and tea pastries. All accompanied by a harpist or pianist. If your valentine is a chocoholic the Chocolate Decadence Tea is sure to be loved – and, you for the idea.

When You Go: Brown Palace Hotel, 321 17th Street, Denver, Colorado

Denver Museum of Nature & Science – Denver, Colorado

Genghis Khan Exhibit

Genghsis Khan

The days trickle down to a precious few to view the Genghis Khan exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science before the artifacts and art return to Mongolia. The exhibit closes Sunday, February 7, 2010 after a four-month visit. Facts, myths and suppositions are explored about Genghis Khan’s life and empire. Grasp a view of the nomadic life-style as you view the interior of a ger (yurt). See live performances by traditional Mongolian singers and musicians, rarely displayed period art pieces and weaponry. Follow the rise and fall of the Mongol Empire.

Time specific tickets are required for admission to the Genghis Khan exhibit. Make reservations before arriving at the museum. I suggest calling; my Internet reservations couldn’t be located two full days after they were made, an obvious glitch somewhere in the system.
