I visited the Douglas Mansion in Jerome in February 2019. The first thing was a very interesting film on the history of Jerome as a copper mining and boom town. The town of Jerome eventually went bust but has made a comeback with tourism. The...More

The Douglas family’s Mining Magnate’s Mansion has thankfully been preserved for posterity and now serves as housing the Museum in the Jerome State Historical Park. You’ll visit it & actually be in it when you visit the Park. Fascinating!

Very interesting history of this area and community. Visited the shops in the area and stopped for a cold brew where all the miners drank in the last century. Cool visit and worth the drive from Sedona.

the fee is $7.00 per adult. Don't remember if there was a break for seniors. Hours are 8:30 - 5:00. The museum closes 15 minutes earlier than the park (it's gated).
