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).

These resort shops open late and not everyday. You pay and told were to go ,it is a mostly reading museum, and no one to guide you around. Could be better for the cost . Boring .

Got here a little before closing time and had to hurry through. Had some interesting history of mining, settlers in the area and the original jail in the basement. Nice gift shop on main floor. Was worth the visit, wish we had had more time. Park City has a bunch to offer.

Pretty cool, only $10. Neat historical relics, and displays. Peek into the past, and the old jail cells!! You might get a scare!

We visited on an afternoon when the weather had turned cooler and had a thoroughly enjoyable 2 hours walking slowly through a number of interesting exhibits.

Not all museums are created equal especially this museum. We learned so much about the local mining and industries. Lots of interactive and interesting presentations, exhibits, and videos. Even my 13yo son who bores easily in museums enjoyed this one immensely. Museum curator spent a lot of time with us telling us a lot and they had an interactive questionnaire... More

The staff was very friendly. The museum has 2 floors and a basement, located on historic main street. Although very informative for the years it covered, this museum is quite small. We did not feel that it was worth $10 a person

My family, including my Dad, and I visited the museum to see if we could find any photos or information about Dad's home and his family's restaurant - he was born and raised in Park City in the 1930s and 40s until he was 13. We didn't know what to expect from the museum or what we'd find there. The... More

From the outside, this museum looks small, but once inside you find 3 floors of interesting history plus a nice gift shop. There is a very good history of the silver mines that made millions and some of the people who became millionaires. A new traveling exhibit called Plastics Unwrapped gives a stunning visual example of the need to recycle... More

Very professional local museum. Enjoyable. Took a good hour to go thru. After we left, you understood what some of the local 'names' were all about. My husband was a reluctant visitor (I dragged him in) but he enjoyed it too and was glad he didn't sit outside!
