Overview

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).

We loved our visit to the Park City Museum. We learned so much about Park City’s history. There are a lot of interactive exhibits that my kids really enjoyed. The old jail is great! Well worth a visit!

Take an hour and learn how Park City came to be. It's worth the time to wander the museum, both up and down. Watch the videos, go to jail and sit in the subway ski ride.

Although I was a little taken aback by the $12 entry fee for adults, this was well worth it and an enjoyable 1-2 hours. It is quite modern, with interactive exhibits, lots of historical artifacts and zingy history with a trip to the old jail...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.
