Quaint little museum with a nice setup. Good artifacts and details about the people of Jerome and how their wealth was developed. Show the rise and fall of the population. Good way to get a quick review of the town for a few dollars

We stopped to check out the copper jewelry and couldn't resist the $1 admission (we're seniors). But even at the $2 admission it's a very interesting exhibit. We've paid more for less. For a town like Jerome, with all its 'colorful' history, this museum depicts the transformation from isolated mining town to hippie invasion of the '80's right down to... More

Enjoyed our visit. Definitely worth the $2 admission. The walk through the mine is really great and I enjoyed the exhibit on script and brothels.

This $2 museum is a gem. It is well-laid out and displays an interesting history of the town of Jerome. Plan on spending about a 1/2 hour or so. There is a shop in the front of the building and the museum is at the back.

We enjoyed the museum and the shop. We also enjoyed talking with the person staffing the museum. The museum offered a slice of life that I found to be very interesting, from what it was like to attend high school in Jerome and then what it was like when boys went of to war. I was also intrigued by the... More

This museum was modestly prices, had clean and comfy restrooms and offered something to interest everyone. The film host is a ghost and it was excellent to see.

Visited Jerome as a side trip from Sedona. Cool little town with a fascinating story & so much history. The museum is small in size but well laid out and a wealth of knowledge of the area and story of the mine & it's origin, the founding fathers and some interesting inhabitants.From Boomtown to Ghost Town to Tourist town! $3...

Lots of Copper to look at and buy, prices are really good. I purchased an 8 inch bracelet for $18, I spent quite a long time there, especially if you go with young teenage girls
