Two of Park City’s most popular museums are only minutes by car from Montage Deer Valley, a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel. The Park City Museum, at 528 Main Street, is dedicated to preserving, protecting and promoting the city’s history and heritage. Permanent exhibits center on the area’s past-life as a mining community and old-west Frontier town and include a 1926 fire truck, an original car from the world’s only Skier Subway and a look inside the original territorial jail. Pieces of this museum can be found at Montage Deer Valley — the luxury Park City hotel has loaned artifacts on display throughout the hotel. Ask the concierge for a copy of the self-guided tour.
Kimball Art Center, at 638 Park Avenue, is in the heart of Park City’s vibrant arts community. Free to the public, the center has three galleries that host exhibitions every six to eight weeks. Displays include pieces of international, national and local significance. Kimball Art Center also hosts well-known events throughout the year, including Arts Fest, Art Talk and Gallery Strolls.
