Directions & Parking
Located at 528 Main Street, the Museum is conveniently located 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.
If you are driving, follow the signs to Park City’s Historic Main Street, then look up for the Bell Tower. Paid parking is available on Main Street between 11:00 am and 8:00 pm. Free parking with a 4-hour limit is available in Swede Alley parking lots (including right behind the Museum) and in the China Bridge Parking Structure (Levels 1-3) on Swede Alley. All-day, free parking is available on the roof of the China Bridge Parking Structure (accessible via Marsac Avenue).
The Park City Museum is ADA accessible. Park on Main Street or in a designated parking spot at the rear of the Museum on Swede Alley and enter through the front doors on Main Street.
All levels, including bathrooms and drinking fountains, are accessible, with the elevator located on the east side of the Museum. Inquire at the front desk for assistance.
There is a lot to see in the Museum. If you would like to spend more time admiring one of the galleries, lightweight stools are available to carry around the Museum. This service is free. Additionally, benches on the mezzanine level offer a place to reflect and relax while taking in the exhibits below.
Helpful Hints when Visiting the Museum
- We reserve the right to inspect backpacks, bags, and/or purses upon entry into and exit from the Museum.
- Food and drinks are not allowed.
- Video cameras and tripods are prohibited.
- Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
- There are many hands-on features at the Museum, however there are also many original objects. Please observe signage informing visitors of the level of interaction in each exhibit and appreciate historic artifacts by observing rather than touching them.
- Weather: Park City winters are cold and snowy, and summers are warm. One thing to remember despite the season is the altitude: at 7,000 feet in the Wasatch Mountains, the sun can leave you with unexpected sunburns. Bring comfortable shoes or boots, water and sunscreen!
Children can complete a “Park City History Detectives” activity, which will guide them through the exhibits and provides the whole family with a way to dig deeper into Park City’s past. The activity can be picked up at the front desk.
Guided tours are available for large groups by appointment only. For information on scheduling a Museum tour, contact Curator of Education Jenette Purdy at 435.649.7457 x5102, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
