Park City historic walking tours are given by the Park City Museum during the summer from June 1st through September 3rd every Monday through Friday, weather permitting. The walking tour takes place on Historic Main Street, leaving the Museum Store at 2pm. Cost is $5 per person. Tickets can be purchased from the Park City Museum Store on the day of the tour. They allow a maximum of fifteen people per tour which is nice so the group will not be too big. The tour is one hour long and can be enjoyed by both visitors from afar or even locals who likely do not know all there is to know about Park City history.
If there are a group of you of more than eight people that would like to go on the tour together, you will need to make reservations at least three weeks in advance. If you are already in Park City and still want to go as a group, try dropping by on one of the less busy days (call ahead and ask) and if your group plus any other people who purchased tickets on that day for the tour do not exceed fifteen, they you may be able to go without the reservations. They would like you to arrive 10 minutes before the walking tour begins and suggest bringing water and sun protection via hat and/or sunscrren. There are no tours on July 4th and Labor Day. For additional information, call 435-649-7457, ext 107 or email [email protected]
I would suggest allowing in your schedule for time to spend before or after the Park City Historic walking tour at the Museum. They have a lot of unique exhibits and hands-on fun activities for the kids.
