This small museum was a pleasant surprise. It tells the history of Jerome, once "the wickedest town in the West" from empty hillside, through the wild copper mining boom years, to its decline to ghost town after the mines closed and its phoenix-like re-emergence as today's offbeat tourist destination. The Historical Society have done a grand job of leavening the... More

Well placed and interesting museum as you enter Jerome on the Daisy Mine site. Do not miss this and take the time to see it all.

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.
