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.

This re-created town center built with original historic buildings that were moved here provides a look of what life might have been in the late 1800's. On your self-guided tour, one can visit each of the buildings and look at the hundreds of photos and items on display. The chapel, cabins, homes are furnished with period furniture and one can...

Nearly an entire old mining town is recreated in this well-presented historical area. I loved it and it's right in the heart of Frisco, which is a delightful quaint town in itself.

It's great: authentic structures, picturesque layout, plenty of historical photographs, artifacts, etc. South Park City in Fairplay, only about an hour away, might have much more structures and artifacts, but they obviously did not have the money of Frisco. Here, in Frisco Historic Park, it's all done absolutely right: fantastic signage, audio/video throughout the complex, brochures and even an audio... More

We just happened upon this museum during a shopping trip in Frisco. This was the highlight of our day. This is a collection of historical buildings from the Frisco area with numerous artifacts in each building. Each building has a narration you can listen to and you can browse at your leisure. If you are in the Frisco area you... More

The Frisco Historic Park and Museum was a highlight of our visit. The Museum is made up of several historical buildings outfitted with antiques surrounding the mining days of the town. The artifacts are meticulously kept to give visitors a real glimpse into the lives of those pioneers who bravely established Frisco long ago. There is a charming little train... More

Here's a free community endeavor that entertains while educating about life in Frisco a long time ago. It's very well done. This is our first recommendation for guests when visiting and people are never disappointed. It seems to appeal to all ages.

I had read suggestions of this place on the Trip Advisor forums, but was unsure of what it would really be like. Since we were a little unsure, we put this on the list as an “if we have time” activity, so just in case we missed it or didn’t spend much time there we wouldn’t feel like it was... More
