Colorado History at it's finest!

This was a trip down memory lane for my father. It is always fun to see how he grew up in Summit County

I really enjoyed this outdoor classroom. The museum is a collection of old cabins moved from various locations in the county. The cabins are each restored and inside they display historic photos and memorabilia of pioneer and mining history. There is a film you can watch in the church. Bring your camera-it is a scenic setting in the summer. The... More

The museum consisted of multiple cabins with lots of information in each cabin. It was neat to see how the people lived during that time. Very informative.

Fun place to visit if you are interested in how the pioneers of this area lived and worked. Most of it had to do with mining and the miners family life.

A must do if new to Frisco. It houses a great display of historical items that rake you from the Gold Rush to present day. Most fun is the miniature replica of the town from the gold rush, complete with model train. The kids love it.

Walking through these hundred plus year old cabins had us in awe. How did people live through the winter in these cabins?? Each house is beautifully restored to give you the idea of what life was for these settlers.

We started in the museum. It was very interesting to hear all about this cute town. There were passports for the children to get stamped at each building. This really kept the kids ages 6 - 20 entertained. There were several buildings to go in and learn more about living in a much earlier time in this town. I definitely... More

Very cute. If you have kids be sure to head into the schoolhouse building to get a Frisco Passport map- they can then find an old fashion stamper in each historic building that they stamp the passport with. It helps make the self-guided tour a little more interesting for them. While you are in the school house you can watch... More

We were there on the Fourth of July weekend. Locals suggested we go through the museum. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of information and items there. I especially enjoyed looking at the different buildings. There was entertainment on sight - a cowboy with lasso and a local band. They were awesome. There was a lot for kids to... More
