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).

Great collection of mining and skiing history. Old jail is neat, check out the steps that have to be original. Neat exhibit on Route 66, surprising since the highway passed well south of Utah. But a fine exhibit all the same. $12, but well worth...More

My husband and I opted to come in on a day off from skiing and we're so glad that we did. The location of the museum is fantastic, and is perfect for creating a day around since it is surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants....More
