A "Must Do" when in Jerome!

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... read more

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!

Good history, linking what you see to what was. We got there late in the day and had very limited time, so missed the video presentation, and it was not great weather so we didn't do outdoor stuff, but still very good.

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.
