Enjoyed learning all about Park City's history...from silver mining to ski resort. Lots of interactive exhibits and fun facts. Saw the entire museum in about 1 1/2...but well worth the $12. Thoroughly enjoyed learning about the area!

Really informative with great exhibits. I'd just finished reading a book on the history of Park City, and this Museum gave it a lot of context. I'd definitely recommend to anyone who is interested in the history of the west.

Great museum that is much larger than it appears from the street. Interactive displays and videos about mining, skiing, their great fire, the Sundance Film festival, and more.

Very unassuming from the outside but what a fun experience! Wonderful exhibits, very interactive. A great way to spend some time with your kids or even other adults. The prison was our favorite. The gift shop has some great things as well.

We had some time to kill before departing Park City and, since it was our first visit, we decided to learn more about the area and history. We were not disappointed. While small, it was well kept and chocked full of interesting stuff, history, and...More

The museum provides really interesting insights into the history of Park City as a mining town, the rise of ski tourism, and it's status as a bit of an outlaw town within Mormon Utah. Exhibits are very well done, hands on / interactive for kids....More
