House and equipment displays are well-preserved and displayed to effectively tell the story of Jerome. Views of the town and mountains are also fantastic. Start your trip to Jerome here.

A great museum with lots of information about copper mining. This was largest copper mine in the country and provided copper from pennies to wiring. It also has great models showing the mine shafts and depths. Great history.

My girlfriend and I visited Jerome, AZ for a day as we were staying in Sedona. The drive was pretty easy and the scenery was refreshingly dichotomous from our typical Wisconsin backdrop. Upon reaching the small derelict mining town, we first stopped at the Douglas...More

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).
