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 is well worth the 10.00 adult entrance. We spent over an hour viewing the displays and reading the history of Parkcity. They really have done a fantastic job for all ages.

We visited the Park City Museum this January and were impressed with the three levels of displays and information. The original jail is on the bottom floor and there are interactive exhibits throughout. The only negative (and it was a big negative) was the unfriendliness...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.
