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).

This small museum offered an interesting snapshot into various elements of town life ... the details of mining, the roles of different social classes, transportation, trade unions, jail cells, the development of the ski economy. Excellent presentations. Worth the admission charge.

Great displays about Park City's early days in an historic building on Main Street (that also housed the city jail. The cells are a big hit with the kids.)

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