  • Our stop here was completely unintentional, but I am completely pleased that we came across this nifty little attraction. After hours of driving and wanting to stretch our legs, we pulled off the road and into the parking lot and figured, what they heck. What the heck, indeed! I love history and the things of the past and this recreation is just brilliant. Very family friendly, though I would personally advice keeping a good eye on your little ones for the safty and preservation of the exhibits. Absolutely worthwhile! Be sure to check out the gift shop, I found a few trinkets that were extremely unique, I must say.
  • An amazingly authentic restoration of a┬áColorado┬ámining 1880's Boomtown with 34 buildings and more exhibits. The story is well told in the brochure and other interpretive signs. The buildings are displayed as they would have been. This is close to an hours drive off of I-70, but we enjoyed the stop. Reasonable price also.
  • Stopped in not expecting much. But I actually I loved it. So glad we visited.
  • Wonderful authentically detailed recreation of an 1880's old west town! Well worth the trip.
  • Hands down one of my favorite Museums and historic towns to visit in Colorado. Fair price for how much work has been put into the restoration attempting to share the history of South Park City. Dress up weekend events prove entertaining as 19th Century characters walk amongst the public in light of the local biannual celebration. It's worth the drive from Denver for the weekend.
