Owner description: 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).

“Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Great museum on three floors. Staff was very knowledgeable and it was great to find out about how Park City grew from a mining town to a resort. Well worth a visit.

“great to learn about Park City's past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

On December 29, 2011 my 3-year old granddaughter and I visited the Park City Museum. I learned a lot about Park City's past. My granddaughter enjoyed the exhibits and many hands-on-activities. After 1 hour, my granddaughter had to use the bathroom which is outdoor. I was disappointed that she (had an earache) said "I actually don't want to go back in to see the rest of the exhibits". I plan to take her to the Park City Museum again this Christmas season as I am certain we both will enjoy it again and see what we missed.

“Fun Museum with great displays and some interactive exhibits.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

The Park City Museum has some excellent exhibits with a scale model working mine that is awesome! Our Grandkids enjoyed seeing that actual territorial jail and spending a few minutes behind bars. They also enjoyed drilling for silver and setting off a dynamite charge in the interactive exhibits. The "Ski Subway" was very interesting. The media display associated with each exhibit was excellent. We even met a Museum volunteer who worked in the mines in his youth. He was a long time Park City resident, WWII vet, and miner. What a treat! We will go again!

“Exceeded Expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

The museum is much bigger than it looks from outside. Park City has a very rich history and this is a good way to learn about it.
