As a history teacher and parent, I love stumbling upon places where my kids can become immersed in history. This historic park and museum is so unique and fun. Be sure to go into the museum first and let the kiddos grab a passport to stamp inside each of the authentic cabins. This was a highlight of our trip to... More

I 'm new to this so I was taken aback by the coverage and appreciation. I built the Park for the Town of Frisco in the early 80s. Best two years I spent in my life I'm West Slope native and glad I had the chance to save my heritage.

This place was one of the highlights of our weekend trip. We went downtown to have a great breakfast at the log cabin cafe and wound up spending a couple of hours here. Lots of great historical significance to the area! We also ran into Santa there and it was AWSOME!! Highly recommended!!

Very nicely done museum spanning multiple historic buildings in a park. Passport for the kids to get stamps at each building, sort of a treasure hunt for them. We've done it twice over the past 4 months they liked it so much. Well maintained and interesting history.

We thoroughly enjoyed touring this museum, as well as the houses that comprise its surroundings. What great insight into what these people went through in our history and how the women of the town virtually saved it from being destitute. Be sure to pick up a "passport" before you commence the self-guided tour of the other buildings, as there are... More

We decided to drive to Frisco to look around while staying in Vail. What an awesome place. Just happened to stumble on this historical park. They have moved several original buildings like the school, jail, homesteads, log cabins, and several others to a little community just off Main Street. You are allowed to go in each building that have historical... More

Frisco's old school house is a delight. The educational displays are far from boring. Wildlife displays feature mounted animals, footprints to track; the narrow gauge model train chugs through old time Frisco, a mining town in earlier days. On the museum grounds there are numerous log cabins, the chapel, country store and jailhouse. All are filled with artifacts, lots to... More

Free. Lots of fantastically presented exhibits with restored relocated original structures from the past. Wonderful video of the history of Frisco. Great train diorama comes to life with a quarter. Easy parking. Professional and friendly staff. Kudos to Frisco for making this treasure available to the public.

A number of historic buildings have been brought together into this local park, refurbished and restored. The signage and videos provide an understanding of and feel for life in the 1800's.
