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).

Loved my visit here! I learned so much about the town, and it was a great thing to do when everyone else was on the slopes.

This is a museum that both adults and kids( 6 and over) will enjoy. Great way to spend a hour or two if you not are skiing. Kids will love the jail and playing with mining equipment. Such a fascinating museum. Worth a visit.

It looks like a little tiny museum, but it is actually pretty impressive! Tons of history on Park City. Again, a nice surprise.

Go to any Visitor Information Center and look at the brochures they have. We found our brochure inside the Hotel we were staying at.
