A good way to learn about Park City and it's transition from a mining town to a ski resort. Plenty of things to keep your attention. We had a good tour led by a very knowledgeable docent.

The age range of our family group is 18-80 and everyone enjoyed this place. Lots of interesting and creative exhibits. Everything from notorious outlaws in the “dungeon” jail to the history of area mines and the development of the ski industry. Well worth the time.
