About the Frisco Historic Park & Museum

Not every small town offers the chance to travel back in time to experience history in an up-close and personal way. The Frisco Historic Park & Museum provides the opportunity to do just that as you explore downtown Frisco. Our collection of original historic buildings, including the Schoolhouse Museum, contains artifacts, exhibits, and photographs that tell the lively stories of Frisco’s past and reflect the Summit County philosophy of embracing history while also connecting it to our lives today.

The Museum also offers a self-guided virtual tour of the Historic Park.

Plan your visit to the Frisco Historic Park & Museum

Great news – admission to the Frisco Historic Park is free! 

True to its name, the Frisco Historic Park is an actual park located in downtown Frisco. There’s no set entrance or exit, and you’re free to explore at your leisure while you explore our historic buildings and Schoolhouse Museum, and maybe enjoy a picnic lunch.

Pro Tip: Bring quarters to fully experience our crown jewel, the extensive train diorama in the Schoolhouse Museum.

Photo gallery and videos

Group tours and field trips

We offer engaging school programs catered to individual grades and guided tours led by enthusiastic staff who are thrilled to help make Frisco history come alive during your visit. For more information, call 970-668-3428 or email

Historic Park & Museum Accessibility

Historic houses are notorious for their tight doorways, uneven floors, and other quirks of their era. This presents challenges for historic preservationists who also want to accommodate every guest. While some of our buildings are ADA accessible, please call ahead to ask about how we can best accommodate your visit to our historic park and buildings: 970-668-3428, or email

For an in-depth look at the future of the Frisco Historic Park & Museum, read our strategic plan. This lays out the framework for what’s to come in the next few years in terms of preservation, sustainability, and delivering exceptional museum experiences and services, among other goals.

A new land-use plan is being developed in 2024 to look at the long-term growth and development of the Historic Park & Museum. We hope you are as excited as we are to look into the future and all of the potential ways to share and preserve Frisco’s history. There will be opportunities to participate by sharing your thoughts, and we hope you will join us in these conversations so we can continue to serve the community for years to come.

Volunteering and Donations

We’ll be honest: a small museum in a small mountain town can’t function without the support and generosity of our residents and visitors. While there’s no admission fee to visit the Frisco Historic Park & Museum, we always welcome volunteers and donations. There are a few ways for both locals and faraway friends to support the Frisco Historic Park & Museum, whether as a volunteer, donor, or by contributing to our 40th anniversary history-gathering project, Frisco As I Remember.

Programs & Events

The Frisco Historic Park & Museum hosts several events throughout the year including several different historic tours, our Summer and Winter Lecture Series, and Frisco History Day. Check out upcoming history and heritage events to find something to delight everyone from hardcore history buffs to the merely history-curious.
