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 most charming and informative 15 minute overview film you’ll ever see about the history of a town - and its mining. Small exhibits but well done. $7 for senior admission. Figure on one hour here. Well educated front-desk Park employees - so ask questions.

Formally the Mansion of the owner of one of the mines, it is now the State Historic Park. There are plenty of exhibits to see and a movie that gives a great history of Jerome.

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).
