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).

I took my 88 year old Mom to the museum last week. She loved seeing all the old ski memoriablia and pictures of the town. There is just enough technology in the movies and in the jail downstairs where prisoners tell there stories to make it cool. Lots of people pass this by but I think it is extremely well... More

Park City spent almost 9 million dollars renovating this impressive, interactive, modern museum. It looks small from the outside but it's worth the $11 admission to get in to see all the fun things about Park City's silver mining past. See a three story (to scale) replica of a mining shaft with moving ore carts! Make sure to go to... More

Since it's a trip people usually take for having fun more than visiting historic sites, Park City museum is a good break for all the outdoor activities and for getting to know the history of the area. Very nice place to see.

We took a day off mid-skiing holiday and did the tour. It offered a great insight into the history of the area, the personalities involved and key events - including the big fire. It is on three levels (lift too) and is interactive, so suitable for kids too. We were there for nearly 2 hours - great value for money... More

Don't let the small store front fool you - this place is much larger than it looks. We have been here with toddlers through retirees and it was great for everyone. There is a replica of an old-time mine and jail in the basement. Plenty of interactive exhibits and great docents. Park City has a captivating history which is interestingly... More

There are lots of outdoor activities in Park City, but this place is great for a rainy day. Walk through the history of Park City, and let the kids enjoy interactive displays. You can even sit in an old mine car, and spend time in the city's very first jail! My kids love this place; we've gone back more than... More

So glad we took a break from skiing to visit the museum. We learned so much about the city! It was an amazing history lesson. There are various interactive exhibits that made it fun instead of getting bored from all the standing. Going here made me more interested in learning the history of all the cities that I have vacationed... More

We visited Park City in August, 2016 and visited the Park City Museum during our stay. It's located on Main Street and is just a gem of a museum. There's three levels and each explores a different element of both Park City and Utah's past. There's historic mining exhibits, skiing exhibits (of course), Sundance, and even an old jail cell....
