We wandered into this museum after lunch and were delighted by the quality of the exhibits and the excellent overview of the town and mining operation. This is more than worth the $2 admission.

This is a no-brainer. Stop in between visiting the shops and restaurants to get a good overview of Jerome's history. The shop in front has some interesting gifts, but the real value is the museum. For just a buck or two you can support the Historical Society that saved Jerome in the 50's by promoting it as a ghost town.... More

Hard to imagine the life these old individuals had. The life of copper mining in this area would be a tough job. Learned a lot here, and gained a little more respect for the tough work it took to pull this job off.

This small authentic museum presents a number of artifacts and pictures to give you the feel of mining life in the mid 19th century. Admission is almost TOO reasonable--$2 Regular, $1 for Seniors. Allow 20 minutes to see it all.

Very Interesting information. Video presentation was very informative. Children wouldn't enjoy the museum much because there is a lot of reading. Enjoyed the history!

Inexpensive and informative. If you stop in Jerome, make sure to stop! Lots of stuff to read, pictures, memorabilia about the town and its often sordid history. Only thing needed is a little upkeep here and there. One of the best bargains in the area!

Loved this location, found the history so interesting. Quite inexpensive for tour and I feel well worth the money. The views alone made it worth it. Video presentation is available as is a gift shop.

The historical Mine Museum was very interesting, lots of rich history. We loved reading about all the things that took place in Jerome long ago. It really was the 'Wild West'. The artifacts and instruments they used back then , was not so long ago if you think about it. We loved knowing a lot more about our history in... More
