The Frisco Historic Park is operated by the town of Frisco. It has many cabins that have great presentations of what it was like to live in the mining days during the beginning era of the town.

Loved walking through 10 small buildings with impeccable displays of early settler life. We spent over an hour just reading and enjoying the visits to each building. Well done!

The area is nicely setup with houses maintained as it was looks like years ago. It has a lot of items of the past, video & audio presentation and exhibit. A nice place to run into while out from recuperating from ski sore :).

We have been to this museum a few times, once in summer and now in winter. It is really a treasure. The displays are so fascinating, and the interactive opportunities for kids are a great bonus. Our 7 year old son had a great time going from one house to the next stamping his "passport". Definitely a must-see for anyone... More

Gave an interesting account of the area. Learned a lot about the gold rush days. The buildings were interesting and worth the tour. Does not take a lot of time.

I admit...I like places like this so it was great for me. It has about 9 buildings, that you can tour and read about the people and places that made Frisco what it is today. It takes about an hour or so to see all of them. The ladies inside are helpful, but do not bother you unless you have... More

There are more attractions in Frisco than just the gateway to great skiing. Stop by and enjoy this historic park and museum. This free admission museum is located in downtown Frisco - an area rich with pioneering, trapping, mining. The museum has restored mining cabins, ranch homes, a log chapel, the original schoolhouse and a jail. Just take the self... More

Frisco has refurbished 14 historical buildings and placed them in the centre of town as a museum. There is a schoolhouse, jail, saloon, several houses and other places. The interiors are furnished with artifacts and there is a lot of information about the history of each building. And is it FREE! A great find.

This is a very cute exhibit. There are 10 structures to look through and there's quite a bit of info provided. The kids(or adults like me) can get a brochure that has places on them so that when you go from structure to structure you can stamp the building you go into. Of course I did that. My husband laughed... More

It is all free in the center of town and interesting to see. Some of the little buildings are the original ones that have been there for many years.
