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 really enjoyed taking our 2 kids here to see some Wild West toys and trinkets. Interesting history that Park City was built around a mining town.

Visiting this museum was a great way to spend a rainy morning. Many of the exhibits had presentations that were motion sensitive. For example, when you sit down in the train car a video begins playing in the windows. The history of mining and skiing...More
