Very nicely done museum spanning multiple historic buildings in a park. Passport for the kids to get stamps at each building, sort of a treasure hunt for them. We've done it twice over the past 4 months they liked it so much. Well maintained and interesting history.

We thoroughly enjoyed touring this museum, as well as the houses that comprise its surroundings. What great insight into what these people went through in our history and how the women of the town virtually saved it from being destitute. Be sure to pick up a "passport" before you commence the self-guided tour of the other buildings, as there are... More

We decided to drive to Frisco to look around while staying in Vail. What an awesome place. Just happened to stumble on this historical park. They have moved several original buildings like the school, jail, homesteads, log cabins, and several others to a little community just off Main Street. You are allowed to go in each building that have historical... More

Frisco's old school house is a delight. The educational displays are far from boring. Wildlife displays feature mounted animals, footprints to track; the narrow gauge model train chugs through old time Frisco, a mining town in earlier days. On the museum grounds there are numerous log cabins, the chapel, country store and jailhouse. All are filled with artifacts, lots to... More

Free. Lots of fantastically presented exhibits with restored relocated original structures from the past. Wonderful video of the history of Frisco. Great train diorama comes to life with a quarter. Easy parking. Professional and friendly staff. Kudos to Frisco for making this treasure available to the public.

A number of historic buildings have been brought together into this local park, refurbished and restored. The signage and videos provide an understanding of and feel for life in the 1800's.

This is a very nice museum. I have been to museums all over Colorado and I saw some things that I have never seen before at this museum. There are numerous buildings to tour. It's like a little town! The only bummer was that the volunteer closed things down early on Sunday afternoon, so we missed a few buildings, but... More

Besides learning about the history of Frisco, the children are given a passport to be stamped in every building. My grandson really enjoyed that activity and showed the passport & pictures to his parents when we returned home. It allowed us to spend time in the park & wallk the downtown. Very enjoyable!

What a gem! All buildings are local to the town and were relocated to a common campus. Brings the old west to life with all the artifacts and informational placards. Lovely location. Great for history buffs.

This is a collection of original homes and businesses brought together in one location, along with a small but fun museum. Very educational, and we spend 2 hours touring the dozen or some original homes and businesses that were relocated there. Great authenticity for what living in those times were like!
