Mansion and museum

This was a very interesting museum/mansion. Watched video with some good history and walked through the mansion. Great view. Worth a stop.

I missed this attraction due to a family emergency but my husband and two kids were able to visit. My 10 year old daughter apparently loves history because she did not want to leave! She could have spent hours in here - definitely worth the small price of admission!

Not very captivating, but the old maps of the towns were great to look at and you can't beat a 5 dollar entrance fee. You get some great views of the surrounding area also from that location.

This is a must-see for anyone visiting Jerome. The reasonably priced $5 fee includes admission to the Douglas mansion, which is now a museum focused on the history of Jerome and the Douglas family. There's also a 30 minute video that tells the fascinating history of the old mining town. It's a great way to get oriented to the area... More

Drove down to the Jerome Historic State Park – a mansion built by one of the mine owners. A good video about Jerome and interesting, if a little-dated interpretive displays. Really hot now as we get below 5000’ – difficult to stand outside in the sun. Views from the park of Old Jerome are good.

Jerome State Historic Park was very educational and informative and a welcome break from the tourist fanfare of the town. We have lived in Arizona for over 30 years and learned a great deal from this Park.

A good overview of the history of Jerome, the mining activities and the mine owners. Well worth the price of admission. Check out the mine shaft below the museum on your way out.

I didn't want to go but my wife and daughter talked me into it, its probably the most memorable part of the trip. The ride up the mountain is intense but very cool, stop at the ore mine and look down the shaft, you won't forget it. The town is tiny but its amazing how its so precariously placed on... More

Just before you climb the last hill into Jerome, one can make a right turn towards the old Douglas Mansion which is now the museum building of the Jerome State Historical Park. Be sure to attend the slide presentation on Jerome to give you a history of the city you are about to see. Then, on the second floor, there... More
