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 is a nice museum, but it's worth stopping by to see their gift shop. It contains a huge variety of cool items - many from the area. It was a fun stop.

The Park City Museum is small but packed full of wonderful artifacts from Park Cities history. There are many interactive displays geared towards educating us on the mining history and the birth of the ski resorts.

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