The museum is located in the back of a shop and costs about $2 per adult, so it is worth a stop if it is your first time, or if you have never been to Jerome. A vast majority of the exhibits are mostly text...More

This was most definitely a high-light of our holiday. Remarkably well structured history of America's very own industrial revolution. The photographs and many displays brought together a detailed story of not just the copper mining, but also how the people lived and prospered.

Learned about Jerome's history and the ways the city has changed over time. Well worth the couple of bucks we paid to get in!

On the outside, it has gorgeous views, it's pretty high up in the mountains. We went here before catching the Verde Valley Train ride. It was unimpressive and boring, unless you have an interest in copper mining.

Small, wonderful, filled with local artifacts, and storyboards to inform. $2 admission is well worth your time and dollar. Enjoyed on a rainy day, I learned so much in a very short period of time.

We took a day trip to this little town. My youngest who is 9 loved the museum. It was a cool thing to see.

The admission for seniors is $1. This is one of those small town museums that prove to be very interesting. In the 1920's the population was 15,000. Now it is 500. The museum tells the story of Jerome and its people.
