Park City Museum Review

One of the best small museums in Utah, the Park City Museum is housed in the former library, city hall, and the Whistle Tower. With a two-story scale model of the 19th-century Ontario Mine, a 20th-century gondola hanging overhead, and the old jail below, this recently renovated museum is an authentic tribute to Park City's mining and skiing past. Climb aboard a re-created Union Pacific train car, hold onto a quivering and noisy jack drill for a feel of the mining experience, and if you dare, step inside a jail cell. Take note of the Mines Beneath Your Skis exhibit, which reveals the miles upon miles of tunnels below present-day resorts.
