We didn't get the chance to venture inside, on a time crunch. Yet, it has ample parking. Also the fee we found a little high. I am sure its lovely inside. We just walked the grounds.

Enjoyed our visit to the Douglas Mansion - started with the "ghost" narrated movie which made the history of the town painless to absorb, understand and put everything into context. It must have been a dreadful place to live in its heyday! Toured the interior...More

Went to the Jerome State Historic Park otherwise known as the Douglas Mansion. Wow, very impressive. I knew nothing about the area and the mining history and I also am not one for museums or historic / educational stops while I'm on a relaxing vacation....More

This turned out to be a very interesting visit indeed. The house/museum is set on a site that has fantastic views of the valley and Jerome itself so that was a bonus to see. Museum mostly to do with mining with some furnished rooms where...More

This building is located in a spectacular spot. The building itself is not so impressive as the spot. You can see from here for miles down the valley. Just takes your breath away. But you also should go inside (and outside) to check out all...More

The Douglas Mansion is more of a museum than a furnished home. You will learn a lot about Jerome mining and what part the Douglas family had in it, along with information on how the home was built and be able to see some of...More

We visited the Douglas Mansion on our first visit to Jerome. We were expecting a tour through a historical home and it really was more of a museum. You did get a map of the place so you knew what room you were standing in...More

The $7 entrance fee (no senior discount) should not detour you. Price is worth admission. Ample parking, well kept grounds offer great unobstructed views of the valley below. The state museum itself has many exhibits depicting mining life in Jerome, the tunnel system, the railroad,...More

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).
