Great family fun at South Park City. Walk through an old Wild West town with residences, shops, mines, churches and it concludes at a gift shop. Wild West shootouts on special occasions.

Children love this place! Fascinating for adults of all ages. Many exhibits are outdoors, and it looks like a street from the past. Well worth the stop!

My family and I found ourselves in Fairplay for an extra day last summer when we came off the Colorado Trail a day early and were waiting for our resupply. Discovered this gem and had the best time! Highly recommend!

Nice place to visit. Very informative. Worth the few dollars if you like Colorado history. Don't expect; Kenny, Cartman, Kyle or any of that sort.

With over 40 buildings from the late 1800's a visit to the South Park City Museum is a trip back in time. Provides a true picture of late 1800s life. Every August they also have Living History Days with costumed actors playing the parts of...More
