The first time we went there we drove the long winding road, do not advise for the faint or inexperienced driver. The straight road was easier. Once we got up there it was amazing. The history, buildings, stores and people were all wonderful. Wear good shoes for walking. We will go back when ever we are in Arizona.

Nice old property filled with period exhibits and pieces. Worth the $5, for sure. Even for non-mining buffs.

This was my second visit to this great little town and a visit to the state park really put everything in perspective. Apparently this was quite a thriving place with precious metals worth millions of dollars being mined here. The short film in the visitors center gives a great snapshot of how the town of Jerome came to be and... More

An excellent variety of information about mining, the history of Jerome, rocks and geology of Arizona, and the history of the mansions and prominent people in the mining industry. There is a 30 minute interesting movie briefly telling the history of Jerome. Displays even continue outside the museum. It has picnic tables with a great view of the valley. It... More

We were happy to arrive in this little friendly town with great views and quaint atmosphere..... We were very disappointed to leave at night unaware of how often and quickly the speed limits change which led to us falling into a speed trap. We received a $216 ticket for going 30 in a 20 mile an hour zone having just... More

Yes, there's a lot of mining history and gadgets here. But that's not all. Kidding around with the park ranger, we jokingly commiserated about how the rich folks get the really nice digs, and everyone else works for them and lives... elsewhere and closer to the mines. One of these prominent families has a connection to world history (hint: the... More

Interesting museum and 30 minute film about Jerome and the mining industry. Worth spending $ fee and about an hour at the museum. Great views!

The view of the town of Jerome from the State Park was so pretty! The town was interesting; it's a shame the town has become a ghost town now.

I had not visited Jereome State Historic Park in several years. I always enjoy going there and learning about the history in the Jerome area. There is so much information and historical pictures and artifacts to look at. I live only about 30 minutes away, but just don't take the time to go up there.
