My family and I are staying in Avon/Vail and decided to take a drive east to Frisco. Only a short 30 minute drive, Frisco is an awesome mountain town with a great Main Street strip of amazing restaurants and boutiques. The Museum is one of the first landmarks on main street. It is an outstanding example of architecture and artifacts of the late 19th/early 20th century living in the Rocky Mountains. I would 100% recommend a stop at Frisco if traveling on I70 west of Denver and definitely plan to stop and see this great historic landmark which is free to all!

This is a very nice, FREE, collection of historic buildings from the early days of Frisco and a small, but informative museum. The museum is located on Main Street, with well-groomed grounds and informative plaques on each building. The historic buildings were relocated from around the town, thus the museum grounds are easily walkable for all ages.
Main street is about 1 mile off I-70. The downtown is very cute, with many shops and restaurants.

It felt like a transport back to yesteryear in walking amidst these old western cabins. Everything was closed when we went but we were free to roam around the grounds which was really all I wanted to do anyway. There is a teepee you can go into, and a really great bronze statue of a bear.

Great little free museum to get a history of the town. The inside museum was actually open which was great and the mural of the old mining town was wonderful and the employee working the front desk gave me some nice tips on historical things i could see in the town within walking distance. The old houses were ok, most were closed and not located in there original location but it was nice kill a couple hours and read about the history of Frisco.

Always nice when traveling to walk into an area's museum to get some background and history on it. The more we learn, the more we understand the community's makeup and how it all came to be. Frisco's Museum was free to the public which was awesome in and of itself. Behind the museum and outside were several historic buildings that had been brought to this area and included for folks to view and go into. Those were very interesting as it brought the homesteaders and characters to life reading their story and seeing how they lived. We loved the little town of Frisco, CO.

This was so much fun. The museums were immaculate, the staff was so friendly the presentation was amazing. It is a must see if you are into the history of the area. It is a free, self guided tour and there is so much to learn about. I cannot state how much my husband and I loved this museum. A wonderful part of our trip. Pam from Idaho Falls.

Frisco has refurbished 14 historical buildings and placed them in the centre of town as a museum. There is a schoolhouse, jail, saloon, several houses and other places. The interiors are furnished with artifacts and there is a lot of information about the history of each building. And is it FREE! A great find.

There are more attractions in Frisco than just the gateway to great skiing. Stop by and enjoy this historic park and museum. This free admission museum is located in downtown Frisco - an area rich with pioneering, trapping, mining. The museum has restored mining cabins, ranch homes, a log chapel, the original schoolhouse and a jail. Just take the self guided walking tour - each building has an audio station and most buildings are decorated in their respective historic style. There are free educational programs and events throughout the year - there are Santa Visits during Frisco's Wassail Week in December - check their website for more details - friscohistoricpark.com Some buildings date from as far back as 1860 - the majority are from the late 1800's. The town of Frisco gets its name from the San Francisco Railway - FR from the word Francisco, IS from St. Louis, and the CO from Company. In 1875 it was called Frisco City but in 1879 the town incorporated as Frisco and dropped the word City.

This is someplace special. Actual log cabins brought to this downtown village park and totally set up like the original settlers with true stories, etc. Free admission, summertime lectures about facets of the old west. Just freely wander from cabin to cabin at ones leisure. There. Is also a museum building contains more artifacts of the Wild West and a great model train that kids love.

Decided to stop here while visiting Breckenridge for the weekend. Sure glad we did! They have restored the historic buildings beautifully and the layout of the whole park is beautiful. The buildings are arranged to resemble what the town may have looked like in it's hayday. A great little museum and a fun way to pass an hour or two in Frisco.
