About $7 to get into the mansion that had been turned into a museum about mining and the Douglas family with little of the original rooms or furniture - which was the only down side. Does tell the history of the Douglas family which is the history of Jerome.

This museum was really nice; showed the history of the town with a terrific scaled geological map. Also a funny movie, starring a "ghost"

The video is a must see. The whole museum is well worth spending time walking through. They have done a really good job telling the story of the copper mine.

Admission is $5 for adults, but that includes a film, two levels of displays indoors, and many artifacts on the grounds. Yes, much of the biographical information centers around the Douglass family, but their lives give us fascinating insights into the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Worth the stop.

We were surprised at how amazing this museum was. Compares to some of the best in the word for authenticity, collection of artifacts, quality of preservation and most of all the storytelling in the video shown there. A must see and worth the entire trip to Jerome.

The Douglas Mansion has been converted to a museum so you must use your imagination to see what the house might have looked like in 1917. See the video first. After the mansion, drive/walk the town.
