I took my grandkids and grandnieces ages 7 to 14 to this museum. I didn't know if they would like it or not. The teenager was not that enthused, but the other kids just loved it and had a great time with using the booklets provided by the museum. If not for the booklets I am not sure if it... More

Bits of historic and culture related to mineral extraction and early cattle ranching. A fine HO gauge train layout of the town of Frisco in the 1890's

The historic park is right on Main Street and you can visit as many, or as few, buildings as you like. Frisco has done a nice job restoring these buildings to an authentic level. Children can pick up a passport in the museum and self stamp it at each building. Many of the buildings have narration available a a push... More

If you find yourself enjoying beautiful Frisco, CO, you need to take some time to visit this historic park and museum. We had a lot of fun with the diorama scavenger hunt before going outside to the other buildings. I was traveling with my 22 and 19 year old kids, and we learned a lot of local history. The highlight... More

The Frisco Historical Society has done a great job collocating many of the historic buildings into the park. There are audio tours in each building, so you can enjoy the historic background and look at all the artifacts and replicas. It is quite fun and there are over a dozen buildings to see; you actually lose count there are so... More

This was very interesting. I would recommend going into the chapel to watch video about the history of Frisco, the school to buy a souvenir and watch the model train set, and play dress up on the top story in Ruth's house. Also, pick up the stamp book at the school house before heading into all the buildings. Each building... More

Frisco has a great history and the museum really brings it to life. There is a reconstruction of the town in its mining hey day complete with a gauge railroad. The building itself is on the historic register and a part of Frisco's historic town center. For first time visitors it's a great way to get a feel for the... More

Don't miss a trip through this free museum. It's really well done. Kids will love the train display and going through the old buildings.

After we had lunch I saw this museum across the street so we took a look. My four year old loved the model train. He spent his own quarter to get the train to run. There is a really neat assortment of animals including a 15 year old black bear that would be the mostly likely type of bear you... More

Not a huge area, but what they have is very nice and lots of info into the insight of the beginnings of the town. Kids enjoyed it, even at the ages of 14 and 16.
