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).

Really interesting museum. Interesting to learn about Silver Mining in Park City. The jail in the basement was a big draw for the kids! Lots of things to see and do! Good value for the money, pleasant staff!

Learn how the silver mining town became a premier skiing destination. Silver mining was a tough way to make a living and the museum does an excellent job of showing life back in the day with a variety of exhibits. The basement includes a jail...More

This museum on the main street presents unusual information about the mining history of the town with a 30 foot (?) model of a working mine. Great way to understand the "how" of a precious metal mine. Almost amazing was the former mine car that...More

Small museum that provides an interesting history of Park City and the surrounding area, from the finding of silver in the 1860s to the re-invention as a world-class ski destination. Exhibits are creatively done and provide great information by murals, films, and 3-D exhibits.
