Really informative with great exhibits. I'd just finished reading a book on the history of Park City, and this Museum gave it a lot of context. I'd definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in the history of the west.

Great museum that is much larger than it appears from the street. Interactive displays and videos about mining, skiing, their great fire, the Sundance Film festival, and more.

Very unassuming from the outside but what a fun experience! Wonderful exhibits, very interactive. A great way to spend some time with your kids or even other adults. The prison was our favorite. The gift shop has some great things as well.

You would think a small museum in a small town would be just a nice thing to do with family, which we did. But it ended up being really amazing, I am going to go back. So much information and the mining aspect was fascinating....More

The museum provides really interesting insights into the history of Park City as a mining town, the rise of ski tourism, and it's status as a bit of an outlaw town within Mormon Utah. Exhibits are very well done, hands on / interactive for kids....More

Ticked away behind a store front on Maon St is a museum dedicated to the history of Park City. From its humble mining origins to its latter day (no pun intended) iteration as a not so humble ski Mecca, the museum explores how Park City...More

This small museum gives a great history of how Park City began as a key silver mining town and it's transition to a world-class ski resort. If you have 45 minutes to wait on someone coming off the ski slopes, or just need a short...More

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.
