Overview

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).

Nice orientation when i went in and was not rushed. Allow about an hour. Pleasant break from the generally poor service and rudeness i experienced in rest of the town.

The museum is located on upper main street and has an interesting gift shop. Some of the museum exhibits can be seen from the store but there is a fee to tour the museum. Public restrooms are downstairs; the entry door is immediately outside the...More

We have been in Park City before but never taken the time to visit the museum. Some great exhibits and gives you a real feel for the city and history of the mining. Would recommend it for all ages.

Did you ski past those abandoned looking buildings on Park City Mountain? Perhaps you took the on-ski history tour (if you didn't, I highly recommend that too). If you were intrigued by any of those historical buildings on the mountain, I highly recommend a visit...More

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