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

We had a great time at the State Park and visiting the old mining district. I was amazed to find out that the mines were not mined out, but contain large resources of ore that was too low-grade to mine in the past. We went to Jerome (twice) so I could collect information on a new book I'm writing on... More

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.

While the town of Jerome thrives on being haunted, I was more impressed ny the history. If you are going to Jerome stop by here on your... More

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
