About
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!

We weren't sure if the $15 admission fee would be worth it, but we're so glad we took a chance. This museum is much bigger than it appears from the outside and from the gift shop. The exhibits were excellent and we learned so much interesting history about Park City. It took us a little over an hour but could take longer. I would highly recommend this museum as a fun way to spend part of a day!

We did the Glenwood Cemetry Tour on Sept 18th. It was very well done and worth it. There are about 8 people dressed up as the person who's gravesite they are representing. They tell the persons story about where they came from and their life in Park City until their death. Very interesting and historical. The people who plays that person has spent alot of time trying to become who they represent. The tour is about an hour long. Wear walking shoes and dress for weather.

Great place to start a vacation. There was a lot of relics and displays that really give the feel of Park City- now and then. Around $15 per person lasted about an hour and half.

We'd walked past the museum dozens of times and never gone in; from the outside all you can see is the gift shop, and at first glance it looked like just another tourist trap...

BOY were we wrong. Talk about packing a lot of history into a small footprint! The mining and historical exhibits were fascinating, and all of a sudden the entire history of Park City came alive for us. Friendly staff, fascinating displays, what's not to like?

We visited Park City Museum on our day off from skiing. If you like history, the history of Park City and the surrounding area is very interesting. We spent 90 minutes reading the displays about the first settlers, Silver mining, transportation, living conditions, etc

This is an excellent museum on three levels. It provides great insights into Park City history and legacies.

The jail in the basement is quite eye opening.

The 2 story tall model of silver mining is extremely well done. Really makes you appreciate how hard underground hard rock mining is.

We were pleasantly surprised with the Park City Museum. We expected to be in and out quickly, but found ourselves getting absorbed in the exhibits. There is plenty of historical information on the history of Park City, including mining, skiing and tourism. We found it very informative and at times, fascinating.

A nice little museum highlighting PC's past. I wouldn't recommend visiting during crowds as the facility just isn't large enough to make such a visit fun. 10 bucks a head is a little steep for this place, but it is PC after all.

Visited twice during the week. Bought gifts both times. A lot of old Park City history on display including an old fire engine. Employees were helpful and pleasant to talk to.
