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! Open 7 days a week (Mon-Sat 10-7, Sun 12-6).

Entrance was through at gift shop and using a wheel chair we had to go the round abouts way to get in and out. I particularly enjoyed the Stage Coach, the Pump Organ and the mine shaft.

Very well done museum on the history of Park City & a great introduction to the area on my first visit here. Expect to spend 1-2 hours exploring the evocative exhibits, including a train car, stagecoach, mining transport equipment & original jail, complete with graffiti on the walls from former prisoners. Great for all ages, & good value for the... More

How interesting to learn about the real wild west. It was a lot different from what we learned in the movies. Great exhibits, reasonable prices.

I went to the Park City Museum to find out the history of the area. I loved it so much I went home and brought my husband. We spent at least two hours there together, and when I went alone, I spent almost as long.

This delightful and well presented museum housed in an old jail and fire station, explains the history of Park City from silver boom and bust to the new “silver bonanza” of skiing. Take time as you explore the museum and listen to the stories of prisoners held in the dark dungeon-like cells.

staffed by friendly people and full of odds and ends of early days of Park City's mining history, along with plenty of tips about what to see and do in this bustling ski resort.

Definitely go. It is very well done. We enjoyed the history lesson and just being able to take it all in at our own speed. There is quite a bit of interesting information. Do stop in.

What a fantastic interactive museum on 3 levels. I had a 2 for 1 adult coupon from a tourist brochure so the cost was only $10. Normal rates are $10 adults and $8 for senior/military. Took about an hour or a bit longer to stroll through the 3 levels. Handicap accessible with an elevator. Stop and enjoy all the areas... More

Park City can be a bit of a snoozer in the middle of summer. Or so we thought. Then, we ran across this groovy little museum during our trip. Thankfully, we found this on our first full day in Park City and it was absolutely darling! The gift shop offers plenty of options for souvenirs and for a bit of... More
