Great displays and history of the mining in Jerome. Took a couple of hours to go through the mansion and the grounds.

When the Douglas Mansion was built in 1916, it was by far the grandest house in Jerome - probably in all of Arizona. The owner of the Little Daisy Mine, James Stuart Douglas, wanted not only a family residence, but a place that would impress his fellow industrialists, investors and mining officials that he was known to entertain. Douglas kept... More

The AZ State park is a great place to visit. Delightful and informative and very broad displays centered around the copper mining history. The intro movie was very densely packed with information but still entertained. The view from the patio are breath taking.

Although we entered the mansion we decided to visit another time due to time constraints. Very beautiful interior, well preserved.

We enjoyed our visit to Jerome and the history of the mansion. Admission is $5 and you can take as long as you like. I actually thought the best part was the Audrey Headframe at the entrance to the mansion, You can stand over a 1900 foot mineshaft covered in plexiglass. This attraction is free.

The mansion itself was very interesting and learning more about how Jerome came about and the mining industry that put it on the map was fascinating.

We actually visited in May 2014 but I've been busy and it has taken me forever to upload this review along with my photos. This was fun and affordable. We were staying in Tempe for my graduation from ASU (go Sun Devils!) and were en route to the Grand Canyon. This museum was extremely informative and engaging. I highly recommend... More

This Mansion is actually a museum dedicated to the history of Jerome and the surrounding area. It is filled with artifacts from the mining industry and really describes the details of everyday life back then. The mansion is huge and has a lot of really interesting photos and models of everything from the mines to what was in the medicine... More

The Douglas mansion is a museum and really shows what life was like back in the day. There is a movie that plays every half hour, I think it is. I highly recommend watching it as it gives a lot of the Jerome area history.

The mansion is the primary attraction of the park, and we found it very interesting. Unfortunately we only had about 40 minutes to explore, which is not enough to discover everything, so I recommend people allow a little more time.
