Learn about the early days of Park City, in a permanent exhibit that includes a replica rail car while watching a film through the train windows about the frontier days.  Or explore The Dungeon, the original territorial jail, located in the basement of the museum, and try to imagine what criminals must have experienced back in the more uncivilized frontier days.  The Park City Museum sponsors history walks of Main Street, historic home tours and many other oral history lectures throughout the year.

Olympic Museums

In 2002, the Winter Olympics came to Park City, Utah, adding yet another layer to this unique history of this mountain town, all while leaving behind Utah Olympic Park – an Olympic training facility which houses not one, but two museums.  The Alf Engen ski museum features the Intermountain Hall of fame for top achieving skiers and snowboarders, and is truly a fascinating place to visit! On the other hand, the Professional Ski Instructor Hall of fame, commemorates the best ski instructors in the Intermountain area, giving you yet even more interesting insights into the history of the area.

The Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games museum features artwork from the banners of the 2002 Olympics, and other Olympic Memorabilia, including a display of Olympic gold medals.  From the Opening Ceremonies to the Paralympics to the torch relay, this museum is a proud monument to the glory of the 2002 Winter Olympics.  There's even a section commemorating the contributions of the 26,000 volunteers that helped make this Olympics one of the most successful and most welcoming.
