This was a gem we accidentally ran upon in Arizona. We were returning to our RV park and took the back way . . . winding up in Jerome. As we drove through the winding streets carved into the side of the mountain I exclaimed to my husband that it looked like Italy. He said, How would you know to... More

Great place to see a complete history of Jerome. The cost was only $5. It was a great place for scenenic photos and it has a nice gift shop.

Great place to go to learn about Jerome. The staff is so friendly and I would go back again! It is a walk around a read for yourself type of place. It may not be the most exciting place for young ones to go to, but teens and adults will enjoy it. It is also a great place for you... More

You should stop here on your way into Jerome (from the north) if you want the history of the city. Start off with a 20 minute film narrated by a ghost that describes the boom and bust cycle. It's done with humor (especially about the hippies) so it's fun. It will make you wonder why people stayed here when everything... More

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.
