Owner description: 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).

The museum was very informative providing the history of Park City and the surrounding area. Would have liked to have seen some history/photos of how the town changed after the Olympics but they did not have any. We did see photos of before and after the Olympics in the Mountain Treasure Inn at the top of Main Street. The hotel... More

Lots of interesting memorabilia of Park City and a great gift shop. Allow enough time here- I only allowed 30 minutes and I really needed 2 hours to go through all the exhibits.

This is a well-organized museum with friendly staff. The interactive displays keep it fresh. The mining exhibits were especially interesting, but I also enjoyed the ski history and details about the town and its former residents. It's a must-see for $10 and can be enjoyed in detail for under two hours.

It's incredible how much history the museum manages to pack into such a small space! This building is two stories tall with a basement, yet manages to have exhibits on the entire history of Park City. Expect to spend 1-2.5 hours here.

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed the museum! The museum is quite deceiving from Main Street, so we are thrilled you were able to enjoy the 3 floors of exhibit space. More
