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).
The Park City Museum is located at 528 Main Street, just across from the Public Transit Center, so catch a free inbound bus to the Transit Center, cross Swede Alley and enter the Museum from Main Street.
