Stop here first before going any further into Jerome. Pay the 5.00, go thru the museum and Watch the 30 minute video on the history of the town. It will truly make you appreciate the town! The view from grounds is nice too.

Visit here first on entering Jerome. The film is well done and gives a good overview of the town. Wonderful displays of the town and mining history.

This was originally the stately home of the Douglas family. The high ceilings are amazing. The gardens outdoors are nicely kept, and the old cars in the stable/garage are restored nicely. Well worth the $5 admission, and has plenty of history explained inside. Clean bathrooms too. Some original furniture inside too, all in all a good visit.

He wonders why I prefer to visit sites like this without him. I could have spent hours here and he gives it 30 minutes. The film was very well done and informative. I love the exhibits as well as the mining explanations. I want to go back alone!

This town is in a very interesting location, so visiting the Mansion is the key to understanding Jerome's history. Very cool indeed, and worth checking out on your way up the hill. All of Jerome is cool to see.

Very interesting history of the mine and the town. I especially enjoyed seeing the movie and there was lots of memorabilia to see. It gave me an appreciation of where the town was at one time in history.

I am an old mining engineer. Jerome is one of the most famous copper mines ever due to its 1 billion pounds of copper and millions of ounces of gold and silver. They have done an excellent job of collecting not only a ton of great photos but good detail about the mines, the people who funded and operated the... More

It was a great Mansion with lots of history to share. There were lots of pictures, artifacts and objects that were used during the mining season. There was also a short video that give an overview of the town. It's definitely worth to spend a few hours!

When you are heading uphill towards Jerome look out for the Brown Sign pointing to the right and head straight to this State Park Museum. There is a very good short film explaining the history of the town. This certainly helped us understand what we seeing when we wandered around Jerome later in the morning. The museum has a nice...
