Jerome is a family friendly place to visit, hike, shop, eat and explore the multiple number of historic builds and streets. Either way you enter into Jerome from the back side of the mountain or from Clarksdale the views are AWESOME.

When the mines closed in the 1950s, the population of Jerome dwindled from a high of almost 15,000 down to about 100 people.

We were meeting family members in Jerome after driving in from our flight into Phoenix and thought we were in the right place. Turns out there are many museums in this small historic town. The entry fee was very affordable, but the history inside this small museum was plentiful! The nice lady at the counter was very helpful and we... More

It's a small museum, and not a multi-media place, but the pictures and the stories of this most interesting (albeit infamous) town are unique. Photographs are carefully placed on the walls with print around them that explains the story of the photo. They help to give you a feel for what life in Jerome was like in the past. I... More

The Jerome Historical Society Mine Museum is a very small museum. many pannle or wall to read with photos, Kids will love it because of the old stuff (mining tools and artifacts. located in the basement of a building, remember you have to walk down to the museum which means you have to climb UP steps to leave.

A wonderful way to learn about the history of Jerome. Well worth the time and a bargain at $2 for me and a $1 for my husband.

This museum only takes a few minutes to see ... or could take much longer, depending on one's interest level. Nicely conceived, not glitzy, but with a "down home" feel. Well worth the time and (minimal) fee.

It was just ok. There were a lot of artifacts but it was a typical standard rather dry presentation and movie. It closes early (4:45) so be sure to go earlier if you are interested. There was a nice view of Jerome.

This museum is at the heart of the town. It does an excellent job of showing the ups and downs and literally sidewards slides of the town. The entrance fee is very reasonable and a pleasant way to kill half an hour.
