Museum Mission

The Frisco Historic Park & Museum preserves and promotes the Town of Frisco’s heritage and history by presenting an excellent educational museum experience to the community and its visitors, connecting the past, present and future to the world around us.

Frisco’s History on Display


Log Chapel & Prestrud/Staley House

Frisco’s history in the Mountain West is long and full of passion and prosperity, heartbreak and rejuvenation, going back to the early nineteenth century (and some 5,000 years before that, when you include early settlements of the migrating Ute Indians). The Town of Frisco officially dedicated the Frisco Historic Park & Museum on July 2, 1983, and was opened to the public and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are now known as one of Frisco’s most significant and entertaining heritage attractions.





Schoolhouse Museum


Train & Town of Frisco Diorama

Continuing to today, and for many, many years and generations to come, the Frisco Historic Park & Museum is fulfilling its mission to bring the past into the present and future, and to show us all exactly how our history fits in to where we are now. Besides the artifacts and structures that display the times Frisco and its people have endured, the museum holds regular lectures, guided hikes, tours and other activities designed to bring the past to life.

As you walk between and into the structures, it becomes possible to imagine life in the mountains across the past centuries, even down to the personalities behind some of the prospectors, town officials, influential citizens and their lives. Orignally utilized by the Ute and trappers for settlement, and then by the mining and railroad industry, the Frisco area nearly diminshed to a nearly deserted shell, but grew back to its current state – hosting millions of visitors per year. The museum shows the aspects of that incredible journey.

Put your hands on the history, and really get a flavor of the roots of this Mountain West culture. Visit the Frisco Historic Park & Museum on 2nd and Main Street, in downtown Frisco.
