Excellent exhibits of mining - one of the best I've seen in Arizona and the West in general. I highly recommend visiting this park.

If you don't like spending hours in lines to see a historic site then this is you spot. An old miners shaft, 1900 feet down, that you can actually stand over on a plexiglass floor. With small information plaques around the area you can read tidbits of great historical facts at your pace.

I liked that the equipment was labeled so we were able to learn about it. I liked to be able to look down the very, very deep shaft without any danger. It was a good stop on the tour of Jerome.

It free, it's fun, and it's fast. While you can't spend an afternoon here, you certainly will enjoy this small park when you come. Take the time to read the signs, think about the men who actually got lowered into that unbelievably deep hole everyday on that cable. It's worth checking out for young and old. The "glass" walkway over... More

You have to experience the walk through to view the 1900 foot shaft beneath the clear plate under your feet! Free ( donations are accepted).

We were told of this by a local who recommended we visit and we're glad we did. They have created a spot that includes a look down a very deep mineshaft through plexi glass and I managed to get some good photos. It was very informative in regards to the mining that was undertaken in Jerome some years ago. The... More

I appreciated the effort made to have a little man cage; the head frame and other important equipment. The shaft is fairly well lit and you can stand on the thick plexiglass and peer down for quite a distance. I wish somehow they still had a bit of the underground mine for us to tour but it has been closed... More

This is a must see and it's free! However, they do accept donations which I would encourage you to pay. This is a quick 15 minute attraction where you can walk up and look down an actual mine shaft that is unbelievable deep! Highly recommend!!!

Kids got a kick out of this, and the drive though the mountain switch backs, and walking around Jerome. Good to show them what mining was like.

Worth going to and looking at for 10 minutes on your way to Douglas House museum. Interesting old mining gear. Top of 1900 foot shaft.
