“Very Interesting place”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

This museum is worth the trip up to Jerome. You can learn a lot about copper mining and the boom/bust era. Watch the short film, too.

“Be prepared”
Reviewed June 15, 2012 via mobile

Beautiful sight to see. If you are used to normal roads, my advice to bring a 4x4 so you may feel comfortable with the steepness and gravel road. The views are breathtaking. It does cost for admission, but it is well with it. This site is so picturesque. Bring water & a camera.

“Lots to see”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

This is certainly an all day trip- lots to see and lots of unique shopping. Gisselle's Bakery is a must- the best chocolate cheesecake ever.

“Copper rocks~”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

There is an excellent graphic showing the depth of the mine and a very cool glass cover over the lighted mineshaft. The mine was the richest in America, over a billion dollars worth of copper was extracted.

“Real interesting”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

The old mansion is real piece of history, with a lot of information and exhibits telling the story of Jerome. There is a video shown that tells the story of the town. We found the place really informative and it told us the story of the mining town.
