Great Activity for Kids

I thought my kids would be completely bored by this museum but they loved it! They loved going into each of the cabins and seeing all of the old furniture and items in the cabins.

This museum is great for kids, but SO well done it is REALLY great for adults! It is composed of a series of log cabins which contain memorabilia and info from the early mining boom in this lovely little town. It is extremely well done and well kept, the exhibits are very interesting and beautiful---it is easy to see this... More

If you are a history buff of the old mining town in the western Rocky Mountains this is the place to visit. It is a well done presentation of how these mt. towns have evolved from the early settlers.

This living museum is outstanding. It is composed of a welcome center and a collection of cabins from earlier days. It was very interesting, well presented, and informative--and free!

My kids love this place, we've been here twice. There are different cabins that were used for different things and by different people. You start at the schoolhouse where the kids can grab a stamp book and then they can go to each building and stamp their book. Plus it's free, that's always nice.

Most are of original log construction. All structures have been moved to the park and carefully renovated. Each structure houses a museum displaying items from early Frisco.

Great place to stop and learn about Frisco. The park has structures dating back to the beginning of Frisco that have been restored and able to walk around inside with history of each building. Grounds are very well kept and great location on main street. Great place if your into history.

We wandered in here to walk off a very full lunch in downtown Frisco. The park and museum are not very big, so you can cover it quick or check out every detail. It's very well-maintained and gives a great history and background of the region. Never realized mining was such a BIG part of Colorado's history. We enjoyed our... More
