My husband and I have been on several of these town museums. This one is by far my personal favorite. The displays are well done and a recording can be played to explain the house or room you are in. Well worth the stop.

OK there is not much there but it is interesting and doesn't take long. It's a worthwhile visit to learn something of the history of the place.

A nice place to get some local history. Family friendly and free. Walk around the grounds and into various small buildings including a former jail.

Old cabins, jail, country store and exhibits in the main museum (Frisco's old school house) are charming and educational. My grandchildren visit the museum every year. The model train running through the miniature Frisco of the early 1900s is especially fun for the youngest visitors.

What a sweet little visit. The model train diorama was a great idea. This little museum shows what a pleasant lesson History can be with a little creative thinking. Very helpful staff person also added to the visit. Great photos of Frisco as it began and grew.

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
