This was a really historical treat. Great views and museum. You do not have to be from Jerome to enjoy this park.
I always love a good history museum and this was is first rate. You can spend an hour or more here, and the kids might even enjoy it . Watch the video, read all the placards, take lots of pictures, and get an overview of what the mining industry was like in this extreme landscape. Imagine hotels renting rooms in... More
I have been to Jerome a few times to walk around the downtown area, but had not had a chance to visit the Douglas Mansion. I would highly recommend visiting the Douglas Mansion if you have an hour or 2 to spend there. There is a short, informative video that gives the history of Jerome which is fantastic. As an... More
Even for those with hyper minds (constantly needing to be stimulated) like myself. Very interesting, not a minute of wondering or wanting to bail! Glad we made it! Good food: Grapes restaurant. Great wine: Caduceus Winery Enjoy
Yes, worth the stop while in the area. We stopped at the Douglas mansion aka Jerome State Park, early in the day. Short film with a lot of info and history. Takes a few minutes to look around the mansion, nicely done, not over done. Probably an hour or so is all the time you need there.
This old mansion that once belonged to a mining tycoon's family is now dedicated to providing in depth information on the history of the Jerome mining industry and all the good and bad sides of it. There's the option of watching a film, which we didn't do, but the museum is all self-guided and goes through almost the entire mansion... More
This museum is in the old Douglas Mansion. There was a movie about the interesting history of Jerome, some very nice rock and mineral specimens (including a fluorescent rock room), early 1900's artifacts and lots of mining information. Well worth the stop.
Enjoyed very much. It was nice to learn a little of the history of Jerome and the man who developed it. Very nice.
The movie before the self guided tour was good, presented by a ghost of Jerome. The mansion is well maintained and many objects of history. The view from the museum is great.
Had been to Jerome twice before-- glad to see the Douglas Mansion finally reopened, and it was the first place we took first-time visitors before heading into town. Great overview of the Jerome area history, including a short video. Fascinating 3-D model of mine shafts in the area, as well as historical artifacts and geological displays inside and out. Absolutely... More
