I have one of those mothers who always had a 'museum stop' on every major vacation, so by the time I became an adult, it was ingrained in me to stop at these places. This place is like Mary Poppin's carpet bag. So many levels,...More

Thank you for your visit to the Park City Museum. We are sorry to hear your experience wasn't up to your standards. Our jail can be a little scary for little ones. The Territorial Jail was built in 1885 and is the original jail in...More

Loved this small museum, very informative. Entrance fee is a little pricey if just seeing the museum. We took the historical walking tour of Main Street and museum entrance, that price was well worth it. Our tour guide was excellent.

We felt that the entrance fee for this VERY small museum was extortionate and there was not that much to see and that what there was was not very well presented.

Really interesting museum. Interesting to learn about Silver Mining in Park City. The jail in the basement was a big draw for the kids! Lots of things to see and do! Good value for the money, pleasant staff!

This museum on the main street presents unusual information about the mining history of the town with a 30 foot (?) model of a working mine. Great way to understand the "how" of a precious metal mine. Almost amazing was the former mine car that...More
