Overview
More
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 museum on the main street presents unusual information about the mining history of the town with a 30 foot (?) model of a working mine. Great way to understand the "how" of a precious metal mine. Almost amazing was the former mine car that...More

Small museum that provides an interesting history of Park City and the surrounding area, from the finding of silver in the 1860s to the re-invention as a world-class ski destination. Exhibits are creatively done and provide great information by murals, films, and 3-D exhibits.

Great collection of mining and skiing history. Old jail is neat, check out the steps that have to be original. Neat exhibit on Route 66, surprising since the highway passed well south of Utah. But a fine exhibit all the same. $12, but well worth...More
