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!

Small, interesting museum that doesn't take long to wander through. Admission was only $2. Lot's of history about the town and people who lived and worked there.

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

It was the middle of a heat wave in the valley (Phoenix) so of course it was warm and dusty, but I learned so much about the early days of Jerome and the miners. What a hard life!

Very small, only a couple of rooms, but full of very interesting facts and exhibits of this little town of Jerome! The town was pretty wild and became a true ghost town once copper fell. It was revived and this little museum catches so many facts of the rich history of this town. Very well spent $1!

This museum cost $2/person to get in. ($1.00 if a senior or a child). There was so much history on the town arranged in a photo wall collage with notecards. Each part of the town's history had it's own section. This is a great stop before or after lunch in town. The views overlooking the town are awesome. You get... More
