Description: Discover Park City's history at the Park City Museum on Historic Main...
Discover Park City's history at the Park City Museum on Historic Main Street. Prospectors discovered silver in 1868 in the area that soon after became Park City. Mine owners made fortunes, while thousands of miners simply made a living. After silver prices declined, Park City reinvented itself as a ski resort town. Interactive displays tell the Park City story in an engaging manner. Fun for the whole family! Open 7 days a week (Mon-Sat 10-7, Sun 12-6).

Kids really loved it!

My young children really enjoyed this museum, especially the jail. It is worth the price of admission for the jail. My kids are aged 9,9, 7, and 6.

An interactive and informative museum covering the beginnings of Park City up until the current advent of a ski resort town. Our favorite part was the actual jail still located in the basement. Highly recommend.

Lots to learn about this old silver mining town. In addition to the museum, there are many old, restored miners cabins scattered about town and they make for a great walking tour.

Museum was good... But we have seen better. Walking tour was a little dry. Kid scavenger hunt helped the kids stay engaged.

Be sure to pick up brochure before going to get the buy one ticket, get on free! Cost us $10 for two hours of fun! This is a great place to learn about the life of the miners.

This museum is done really well. All of our kids (3,6,11) loved it. There is a scavenger hunt for the kids, and lots of interactive displays throughout giving a great concept of Park City 100+ years ago.

Museum was a lot larger than what it appears to be when you first walked in. Really interesting exhibits, with lots of interactive stuff. Learned a lot of interesting information about Park City while here. Didn't have children with me, but definitely think they would be entertained here as well. Had some creepy stuff, like a clown exhibit (and just... More

Surprisingly large, 3 levels, beautifully done, with videos, interactive displays and lots of information about Park City when it was a mining town. Park City was almost a ghost town until it reinvented itself as a ski town in the late 70's. There is a plexiglass display that shows all the thousands of miles of mine tunnels that run under...

We stopped here for about one hour. It was interesting to learn about silver mining, the fire and the circus. The exhibits are well done. I appreciated having stools to sit on while I viewed and read about the exhibits. It wasn't too crowded.
