Really nice museum. I recommend. It sits on top of the original Park City jail and you can go down to see it. Lots of silver mining artifacts. $12 for adults. Small museum, but plenty to see. It does have an elevator.

Fun stop for the kids. Nice gift shop and adjoining museum. The museum is fairly small and there is an admission fee. Our kids love looking at all the cool artifacts and trinkets.

Locals and visitors should all spend time in the Park City Museum. What an amazing experience. I was there with family - ages 7-50 - and everyone loved it. Interactive, interesting and fun.

From street, museum looks small. Adult fee is $12. Does have three levels and is still small, but concise. I came out with a better understanding of old mining towns. I have visited many California gold Rush towns along the Mother Lode, and this fits...More
