  • Stopped here after driving by for many years. The self guided tour is great! Spend as much time in each building as you would like. So much history to read about. They have done a great job staging every stop. I really enjoyed the tour!
  • This place was awesome! Well worth the money. Old buildings are kept up very well and have a lot of the original items still in them. In the mine building, they have an original machine from 1864! I highly suggest going here.
  • I can't say enough good things about this place. It is like being transported into a Colorado mining town I the 1800s. If you love history or Colorado please go. They have everything from a mine, mill, saloon, general goods store and train station.
  • South Park City is an excellent old western town setting that has brought in many historic buildings. Better yet there are character actors who have taken on historic figures to help you get a better understanding of life in the 1800s.
  • Outstanding small community museum. Went for an hour and stayed for three. Great for kids, too.
