Interesting facts about the town and history...but nothing to write home about. The museum should be free. We drove 30 miles out of our way based on a recommendation from a local and I didn't see what the big deal was. The whole museum takes about 30 minutes to walk through...and that is after stopping to read all the placards.... More

This gem was restored in the 1950's from a storefront to present day museum. This is a small museum, compact in size but big in history, with period photographs, paintings and artifacts.

Since my boyfriend and I are both geologists and interested in history, we had to stop in this place. It's small and located along the main drag in Jerome. The museum, itself, is packed with information. The start of the self-guided tour displays a full-detailed timeline of the history of Jerome and the mining industry there. There's lots of photographs... More

Jerome is not that big of a town so you might as well visit this museum if you've already made the trip up the mountain. The museum is filled with the history of Jerome, a mining town and it's visually pleasing to see old artifacts of an era long gone. Lots of information to take in so expect to come... More

Your in this area to visit this trip back in time to the early mining history in Arizona. Jerome is all of that, Old Buildings, Old Cars (including Police & Fire) and "The Town Jail. If you do not visit this museum you are short changing yourself, it has a great amount of history and information. Visit this location!!!

We sat thru a 30 min film on the history of the town, the mines, the culture, and the early 1990's life in Arizona. This is very informative for everyone who loves History. The town seems a bit cramped but makes the best of the space it has. Fun trip.

nice gift shop--museum was mostly photos, but also a few displays--the young lady on duty had her music cranked up pretty loud, but lowered the volume when I asked--if you are interested in mining history in general, and the history of jerome in particular, this is worth going through

We enjoyed the museum less than picturesque little sidehill town which is what this review is really about. The galleries and artisan crafts were great! The town was a bit crowded but well worth the time.

My husband and I stopped in while walking around Jerome. For $1 each (senior citizen rate) we got in the museum full of information, pictures and items from Jerome's mining days. Definitely worth the price. The gift shop is full of interesting things - I splurged on a couple of copper rings.

This is a small museum located in the back of a gift shop. Admission is $2 with discounts for children and seniors. Lots of explanations, photos and memorabilia about Jerome. If your a history buff like I am, this is the place to go. Located next door is the remains of one of the major buildings in Jerome which is... More
