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.

Mansion, museum...yes to all. This is a great place and not to miss while in Jerome. Nice history of the copper mining industry during the early 1900's and the mansion with the tech during that time was remarkabe to say the least.

If you are in Jerome.. you have to go here. The idea that such a MODERN home was built on the middle of no where and has stood the test of time is wonderful .

A huge mansion! I cant believe all the technology they had - including a central vacuum system - from 1916! Lots of other information can be learned about Jerome here.

The park rangers at the mansion were able to answer almost every one of our questions, and we had quite a few. Nice and clean facilities, from the picnic area to the restrooms.
