Stop at the museum first, see the video and the 3d model of the mine shaft complex. It'll give you an appreciation for the what's left of the town. Also, stop by the Aubrey head shaft after leavin the museum to look down a 1900' shaft (deeper than the Empire State Building is tall!). Very artistic vendors, authentic gifts! The... More

This museum includes a informative movie explaining the history of how Jerome became a mining town. Reasonable price, great views of the scenic mountains with a nice gift shop.

Video they show all the guests was good history of the area. Displays well labled. Good view of the mining town below and Jerome's "downtown" up the hill.

Looking down the mine shaft was an experience. Also the scale models showing the underground system are very well done.

Well worth a visit to get an overview of the history of the place. Lots of old photos of the town, and bios of the founders. There is a film that is very informative.... it's worth the trip on the way into town to know what to look for once you park and walk around.

We expected to see a furnished house, but it was mostly a Jerome museum, and well worth the small fee. We liked learning about the family who acquired their wealth in the mining business.

Overall pretty cool stuff. The Old guy who runs it makes you wonder what will happen to all these relics when he passes.

The views from this town is spectacular. It is sitting at the very top of a very steep mountain and you can see for miles. We drove all around the town, on some very steep and some dirt roads. It is well worth the drive from the Sedona area, but I don't recommend coming in from Prescott or driving on... More

This visit is well worth the drive through the winding roads. We visited the cute shops and walked through the neighborhood streets. The people were very friendly. We had a great time at the State Park learning about the old mining district. We ended our day at the Mile High Grill. The wait staff were very accomendating and the food... More

We came through Jerome on the way to Flagstaff and although the drive to it was spectacular, we were a bit disappointed with the town, partly because it was so touristy and partly because it was so busy. There probably weren't that many people as it was out of season, but the roads were narrow and the town was small... More
