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).

Enjoyed learning about the silver mining days. Amazing to see how extensive th tunnels were through the mountains. Also never knew there was a subway ski lift through one of the tunnels.

The Park City Museum is special. It provides one with a glimpse of the town's history from the early days of mining to the current skiing and outdoor activities. One really gets a flavor of the town

This is a great little museum, looking at the history of Park City. It's really well done. $10 entry; although picked up voucher for two-for-one fee. This is definitely worth visiting on the historic Main Street. The staff were great; friendly and knowledgeable.

I was surprised at how much we enjoyed this museum. The price is very low, so we expected a lower quality. We were pleasantly surprised! There are so many interactive exhibits, we stopped and enjoyed every part.

Went to Park City, which is lovely even in off season. That's why we had time to ride the trolley and walk the area. This museum is a gem. The local history is covered very well. In addition to the copper mines and ski industry, so much more! And they had a special exhibit about the history of aprons, with... More

Loved this little place. The original artifacts was something to see. In the lower level you walked into the original jail house that was built when the city was constructed. A must see for all history buffs.

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
