Small but worth it. Nice views out over the valley as well. Good video story and some nice artifacts from days past

Jerome is full of wonderful history and intrigue. From the old mines to the newly remodeled (and haunted) Jerome Grand Hotel! The park is just beautiful and a great place for an early morning hike.

We drove to Jerome from Prescott. it's a 45 min driving through the mountain but the trip worth it: discovering an conservated old minning town with his shops and restaurants spreaded on small streets with scenic view and build it down the slopes. The town became a ghost town in 1953 after closing the copper mine but in 60's artists... More

We camp outside in the national forest between Williams Az and Jerome AZ and take the back road in our jeeps into Jerome for a great day trip. The back road is fun, exciting and offers some spectacular scenery. Upon arriving in Jerome we really love the state park for it's history , views and scenery.

I've been to Jerome 3-4 times in past few years, but have never visited the Historic Park!... Shame on me! We learned a lot and only had to invest about 90 minutes of our time! The movie is great and discovered a few interesting artifacts! ... Not the Biggest... Maybe not be "Best"... But for what it is, what it... More

My husband and I love history and found the film very informative and enjoyable. 120 prostitutes were in Jerome in its prime! Who knew? The display of old miner's equipment, with photos and personal stories was fascinating. Don't miss this stop!

We have been to quite a few mining museums and this rates with the best. Located in the original mine owners mansion the exhibits will take a good hour or two to go through. Even longer if you read everything. Your visit should begin with the 30 minute film that provides a great history of Jerome and the mining activities.... More

For me the best part was the film showing the creation and destruction of Jerome. Both funny and sad. The artefacts on show are interesting and it is all well laid out and very clean. The outside area displays a selection of machinery used in the town. It would be a shame to miss this attraction.

There is a lot of learning to be done here, along with the visual of the real thing! Beautiful piece of property. Great 360degrees views. The history of mining is not something that most of us think about, or how many people died to make life better for others, It was a very hard job!
