On our recent trip to Sedona, we decided to take a ride and visit the old mining town of Jerome which now boasts lots of nice shops and some really beautiful and unique art galleries. 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

One of our favorite day trips or even overnight is to the old mining town of Jerome, Arizona. After hiking Mingus Mountain we drive up the hill to this historic town for dinner and a glass of wine or craft beer. The town has gone from ghost town, to blight, to hippie town and is niw a hip destination. There's... More

It only costs $5 to go through the museum. The 20-minute video featuring a "ghost" as narrator explains everything you need to know about Jerome, the Little Daisy Mine, and the surrounding area. It's quite entertaining and educational. Enjoy all of the views from all sides of the Douglas Mansion...they are incredible.

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!!!
