South Park City is an outside historic museum with 42 original furnished buildings and structures depicting an 1880s-era mining town. The buildings include a church, school, dentist/barber, doctor, coffin-maker, blacksmith, saloon, drug store, general store, homes, train engine and caboose, and other structures that portray life in an early gold mining town in the Colorado Rockies. Visitors can try walk into each building, and try out the furniture, play the pianos, ring the school bell, and stroll along the boardwalk, and, in the process, get a real feel for life in the Old West.

  • Best museum I have been to ever! Wonderful walking tour and so much amazing information. Plus you can't beat the views and the staff is so kind and helpful!
  • So much to explore. You can easily spend an hour or two here. I've never seen such a massive collection of artifacts put together.
