The museum provides really interesting insights into the history of Park City as a mining town, the rise of ski tourism, and it's status as a bit of an outlaw town within Mormon Utah. Exhibits are very well done, hands on / interactive for kids....More

This small museum gives a great history of how Park City began as a key silver mining town and it's transition to a world-class ski resort. If you have 45 minutes to wait on someone coming off the ski slopes, or just need a short...More

Really nice museum. I recommend. It sits on top of the original Park City jail and you can go down to see it. Lots of silver mining artifacts. $12 for adults. Small museum, but plenty to see. It does have an elevator.

Fun stop for the kids. Nice gift shop and adjoining museum. The museum is fairly small and there is an admission fee. Our kids love looking at all the cool artifacts and trinkets.

Locals and visitors should all spend time in the Park City Museum. What an amazing experience. I was there with family - ages 7-50 - and everyone loved it. Interactive, interesting and fun.
