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).

The Park City Museum is the caretaker of a storied mining past. They have curated the stories of the families and miners that built the historic town and create the skiing that exists today. Watch for special events such as the collection of skis from the 1960s to current and ski wardrobes. The staff also brings in special exhibits from... More

This museum tells a story of Park City history that appeals to all ages. There are spaces to crawl or sit in as well as interactive panels. A very creative way to tell a story! It's more like an experience!

What a lovely interesting museum. It gives a great potted history of the town from its early beginnings, its silver mining heritage, the development of the ski resort as well as information about local characters in the town and they role in the towns development. The museum is well set out with a combination of video clips, artefacts and information... More

Wow we didn't expect such a nice experience. The exhibits of the mines and the mining process was intricate and complete. Housed in the basement is the old jail, fun to peek around and see how they locked people up in the good old days of the Wild West!

The kids enjoyed the museum and there is a nice store you can buy some neat gifts for the kids. The other great thing is you can come and go as much as you want the same day.

I am not a HUGE fan of museums but this museum is amazing! Has the mining history with replicas of the mines and follows the history right up through the 2002 Winter Olympics up to, today.

I was absolutely floored by Park City's RICH history. Who would have known the small city had a red light district, riots, and a booming mining town (no all in that order)? You can even see the old jail. It is eerie, well kept, and done well. Perhaps the eeriness comes from the fact that people have died there as... More

The museum is small, but contains a lot of mining and western artifacts. It is a nice glimpse into the history of Park City and mining.
