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 recent restoration of this Museum is outstanding. The exhibits are excellent and succeed in telling the full story of the town from the mining era to a world destination ski resort. It is well worth a visit adults and children alike.

very very small. The jail was an exciting thing to see. The gift shop had fun novelty items but extremely expensive.

We spent about 3 hours strolling through the museum. Nice interactive touches throughout. We had a brochure from our hotel with a buy one get one entrance free deal. $10 for a great museum.

Inside this quaint little storefront museum packs a half day worth of interest and fun. It is interactive and very creative. The jail in the basement must be seen. The tour is self guided and the staff is excellent. The history of the hippies vs. the silver miners is very entertaining. Great value.

I thought the museum was well put together with interesting displays depicting the timeline that is Park City. I would recommend a stop in here. One of the highlights is the talking book in the dungeon!

This visit takes about 45 minutes but can take up to 3 hours if you soak it all in. Tickets cost $10 for adults with half price for visitors over 65. Children are $5 but that can include a surprise at the end -so ask at the counter for how that works. A guide provides an overview but then you... More
