This city museum is FREE. Don't allow the lack of admission fee fool you...it is a first class exhibit. There are about a dozen century old structures on site and the accompanying tools, products of antiquity and photographs were outstanding. These folks did a fine job of assembling good stuff and telling good stories. Several multi-media options were provided. I... More

Well worth the visit - free and enjoyable. We enjoyed every building we entered. Interesting time - be sure to check out the jail cell and the "well to do" miner's house. It was a pleasant side attraction. The ladies in the office gave us many great travel tips also.

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
