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).

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

This museum tracks the mining industry that was once prevalent in the area with well thought out displays and artifacts. Related industries like retail shops, the old fire department and jail added a particularly local feel. The museum was worth the visit, so go, but...More

The location of this museum makes you question if you should enter. It looks like no museum you ever went to, in fact upon entering it looks like a small town gift shop. A small sign on the counter tells you about admission fees to...More

This little place is a great option for shopping-weary teenagers (or adults)! It is a well-designed, interactive museum that educates the patron to the history of Park City. Our boys, 11,13, and 15, and all typical sports and video-game loving boys, loved it. They stayed...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.
