Nice museum. Great history. Well worth the time.

Jerome has an interesting history. This museum really ties it all together, as it's such an unusual place one needs to view the museum to get the "real" story behind Jerome. Well... read more

This is definitely worth the $2 admission. Pictures and explanations of Jerome's mining days tell the story. From boom to bust, fire and prostitution, Jerome had a colorful history. It won't take long to get through this museum, maybe a half hour, but it is worth the time.

If you have already walked around town and actually read the signs you probably have a lot of the information presented in the museum already but it does ill in the gaps well and it you're passionate about mining it is a good place to go. They have a film in the museum and that was actually great because it... More

Jerome has an interesting history. This museum really ties it all together, as it's such an unusual place one needs to view the museum to get the "real" story behind Jerome. Well worth the time. It's a reasonable entry fee, which makes it even better!

Lots of history, and lots to look at in the old mansion. My 3-yr old especially liked the train display upstairs, but could not sit through the video of Jerome's history. Happy we visited. $7 per adult and my child was free.

Spent an hour perusing the many photos and descriptions, and got a good overview of the town in a fast, enjoyable manner. The darken mine exhibit in the back corner added a bit of intrigue for the kids.

Behind the gift shop is this small museum yet it is a wealth of history of mining and knowledge of the story of Jerome's discovery. At $2 per person, it's well worth the time to discover this gem.

Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful of the area. Went into the video room and watched a short video of the history of the home which was now a museum. Saw lots of historic relics and learned about how the town once flourished in mining.

For only $2, you can walk through the history of Jerome, learning about its culture and its most memorable and colorful characters. Exhibits are comprised mainly of photos and typed narratives, with a few artifacts in cases here and there. Great for history buffs, but young children would be bored.

This is a fascinating place. Excellent video presentation of the history of the area and the city of Jerome, AZ. Lots of mining history including old equipment. Great view from the parking lot as the museum is on the side of the mountain. Well worth the time if in the area.

This museum, run by enthusiastic members of the Jerome Historical Society (which has bought and maintains several historic buildings in Jerome) is chock full of delightful and interesting artefacts and stories from Jerome's mining past. In my humble opinion it was better than the larger and 'posher' Douglas Mansion Museum (although I enjoyed that as well).
