Andrea Malcomb is Director at Historic Denver’s Molly Brown House Museum, and will be joining us to discuss Molly Brown and the Irish in the American West.
Under Malcomb's leadership, Molly Brown House Museum has elevated its public history impact through programs and interpretation that superimpose feminized narratives of historical events onto contemporary place-based activities, prompting audiences to explore a new, woman-centered dynamic between past and present. Malcomb has also ensured the historic house will stand for another century with the recent completion of $1million+ in capital restoration and the addition of accessible programming spaces.
She currently sits on the board of the National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites and is in a second term on the Historic House Museums Committee of the American Association for State and Local History. Malcomb also sits on the board of Irish Network CO, and volunteers with the League of Women Voters. She enjoys watching TikTok videos with her 13-year-old son, doing DIY projects with her partner, reading, and championing for women’s rights.
