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).

Small jewel you shouldn't pass up

The staff is really great and enthusiastic. This is a very nice little museum and terrific place for learning lots about Park City. The exhibits were well done and interesting.

Great museum, I'm glad I had the two for one coupon. The interactive displays had a lot of effort put into them. Lots of history about the area, the town, the mining and skiing development. Well worth the 45 minute drive from SLC, and worth the time to visit. People of all ages can get something out of it.

We had a two for one coupon but it's worth the full price. We enjoyed the interactive elements throughout the museum. So much to read, see & listen to during our self guided tour. They have a guided tour available but we enjoyed going at our own pace, my husband enjoys reading every word on every plaque.

This was a great small museum, it took about an hour to get through. There was some interesting exhibits and interactive things for the kids. Learning about the silver mining was fun and my kids loved the jail downstairs. The kids filled out a scavenger hunt paper and got to pick out two colored rocks or marbles from the gift... More

Staff was very nice and polite. The best small town historic museum, it is a must see activity in Park City I would say.

Educational and entertaining for the entire family. Handicap accessible. Go into the old jail block (it's still there), learn all about mining, see the first snow skis, first snow shoes, and first snowboards...

Great place to visit for locals and tourist. I live here and love coming to this museum. The rebuild was amazing, the old jail downstairs is the best. I take my ghost hunting gear and have some fun down there. Beside that it is a great learning experience for the entire family

Standing outside the storefront of this museum, we couldn't make up our minds whether to go in or not; however, we had picked up brochures with 2 for 1 admission so that helped us decide. Wow! We are so glad we didn't miss this gem. It is the complete story of the settlement of Park City as an important mining... More

You must step beyond the "shoppe" and into the history of Park City. From it's inception to the growth, fire and rebirth, the town of Park City is amazing. Enjoyed the interactive journey through the history of the religion, the mines, the jail, the Labor union, and the circus. Don't miss the "mug shots" in the jail!
