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.

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 18 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!

Family Fun

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. Inquire at the front desk.
