We accidentally stumbled upon this museum, which is located inside a store. The museum is not very big but has so much information. You can spend a couple of hours here reading all the information and looking at everything. We found it interesting. My teenage son enjoyed reading the town history. There are so many subjects from medical, police, high... More

This was an old mining town. Underlining caused buildings to slide down the street. Women were few men were a lot so ladies of the evening worked hard. This is a town now of artisans and the view is spectacular. Well worth the time to travel to from Sedona and see how thing were years ago. People are friendly and... More

For only $2.00 a person, this little museum is well worth visiting. It's a great way to spend an hour and to learn quite a bit about the local history.

This small museum was a pleasant surprise. It tells the history of Jerome, once "the wickedest town in the West" from empty hillside, through the wild copper mining boom years, to its decline to ghost town after the mines closed and its phoenix-like re-emergence as today's offbeat tourist destination. The Historical Society have done a grand job of leavening the... More

Well placed and interesting museum as you enter Jerome on the Daisy Mine site. Do not miss this and take the time to see it all.

It was a hot day when we decided to make the trip. If you are fearful of heights, the ride up (and down) might not... More
