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).

Between check out from our lodging and return to the airport in Salt Lake City, my husband and I had a very fun visit at this museum. On three levels (elevator accessible), it is much larger than you would suspect from the storefront, and addresses many phases of the past of Park City, from mining, to support of the 49's,... More

Some museums can be really hokey, but this one was a pleasant surprise. Lots of interesting artifacts to look at and learn about the storied history of Park City. Give yourself at least 1 1/2 hours to really take it all in. I believe it's located about midway on Main Street.

History of Park City, silver mining, and the ski industry. Park City as the renegade in Mormon Land. Don't miss the original jail and the hippy invasion of the 60's!

If you are taking a day away from the slopes this place is worth a visit. Some genuinely interesting stuff about the history of Park City. You could easily spend an hour here looking around. Old city jail in the basement is worth a look.

No matter what your reason for visiting Park City (winter or summer), please include a 2-3 hour stop at the PC Museum. The mining history is well documented through hands on exhibits, impressive detailed models, and a well thought out tour plan. I have four children ages ranging from 9 to 14 and all of them were fascinated and absorbed... More

Our first full day in Park City we decided to visit the museum to get a historic perspective to provide a foundation for our visit. While I am not usually a fan of museums, this one did not disappoint. It was interactive, informative and insightful. The basement with the jail, mining and skiing subway was my favorite! I'd definitely recommend... More

This was a quick way to get an overview of the history for the area. Several interactive exhibits and hands on displays make this also interesting for children. The location on main street provides a perfect break from shopping if a dirverstion is needed.

We took a short tour of the Park City Museum as part of a Gourmand Food Tour. Lot of items to look at (be sure to check out the wall showing the vertical 900 foot mines!), and the museum gives a good overview of Park City history.
