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).

“Love This Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2015

The museum is a must-see. Impossible to really appreciate this town without knowing it's history and Park City Museum does a wonderful job of taking you through from the very beginning.

“Interesting & informative museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2015 via mobile

The Park City museum is a good alternative way to spend an afternoon if you don't feel like skiing. Who knew that there was an underground ski subway! What I found most interesting, was the contrast between Park City as a mining town, compared to Vail which was purpose-built as a ski town. The exhibits are well done. Entry fee $10.

“Worth Seeing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2015

Great for kids and adults. We enjoyed taking a break from the slopes and getting in some history! The staff was friendly and the kids never complained.

“Nice museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2015

I enjoyed this museum. It was small but informative and interesting. The most interesting feature was the jail cells beneath the museum - original jail cells, and you can even go in one of them. It costs $10 for adults, and they have a good gift shop. If you are looking for something quick and different to do while taking a break from skiing, I highly recommend this museum.
