The Douglas Mansion has some great views. it's a beautiful mansion with a very informative museum housed inside. Allow yourself plenty of time to meander through all the rooms. There is also a 30 min movie on the history of Jerome that's worth watching if you have to time.

The small video that they show you is very informative and gives you a lot of info to think about when you are walking around the town.

Reasonable charge. You can sit in the spacious living room/guest shop and get the feel of the mansion. Lots of information about the area mines with great graphics models of the layers of the mine--no wonder Jerome had catastrophes with earthquakes and land slides.

This mansion is a step back in time and the history of the mining experiences of the town along with the owners of the mines and the people who worked them. Lots of artifacts

After walking in Jerome, and having a sandwich, we toured the Douglas Mansion. Great collection of mining items. This is an easy trip from Sedona, but a mountainous trip from Prescott.

In an old Jerome mansion, they have detailed history of the Jerome mining industries as well as the families who originally settled the area. Well documented displays with narratives and pictures, an approximately 30 minute video explaining the history of the Jerome area, a detailed mining diorama showing the tunnels and related depths of the ore veins. Well kept grounds... More

Interesting and enjoyable, but I did think the price was a bit steep when compared to the Mining Museum which also has lots of great historical information for $1-$2 admission.

We aren't museum hounds, struggle with the geology overload, and don't have an overriding interest in mines. Doesn't matter. The story of the people who built this town and this mansion and supplied the country with copper, zinc, silver, and gold is presented in such a compelling way, it pulls you in. Nothing lavish here, but presented in such a... More

We happened upon this and since I'm interested in mining decided to stop and it turnetd out to be the highlight for that day's sightseeing - at least for me. The mansion served as private home and it's in excellent condition and shows the style of the 1920s and 1930. The contrast with the miner's lifes and home was extreme... More
