The Douglas family were among the original owners of the copper mine in Jerome. Their mansion shows some of the mining equipment used then, as well as the lifestyle of the elite of the Jerome Community. Highly recommend if you're in town to see Verde Canyon RR in Cottonwood and Clarksdale. Be aware, however, that the drive up the hill... More

Jerome Is a very interesting town and it is well worth your time and $5 to visit the old mansion and watch the film

Visiting Jerome is a total waste of time, since there is nothing to visit. The so-called ghost town is clearly a tourist trap. Don't waste your time there.

beautiful views, fun drive up the hill, authentic - enjoyed the video in the museum - well worth the $5. Gives you an idea of the history of that area.

This museum, especially the movie on the history of Jerome, is a great way to understand how the city was in the past. It was quite a city when it was at it's zenith w/ 15,000 inhabitants. It is a great place to visit today blending old & new!

I am so sorry that I discovered this jewel late in my trip to AZ. I would have spent much more time in Jerome. The drive up there is thrilling and breath-taking in more ways than one! The little town is unique.

Lots of displays, not just on the mansion but the history of Jerome. I agree with other reviewers - its a good first stop in Jerome to learn about the town. My favorite thing is the models of all the mines and mine shafts.

This state park is a must if you visit the Verde Valley. The displays, indoors and outside, give insight to Arizona's early days when King Copper ruled. Fascinating histories of the families that created Jerome along with a film that reveals Jerome's colorful past. Roam the Douglas Mansion then marvel at the vista of Jerome. No food on site, but...

Must see! And watch the movie for background on Jerome history. Jerome has to be part of your travel plans if you are visiting Sedona.

Very interesting and informative. You will come away with the knowledge of life in a mining town. Then, go up the hill and enjoy all Jerome has to offer--especially some of the great restaurants.
