There was a great movie inside he mansion that made the mansion the perfect 1st stop in Jerome. The movie summarized the town's interesting interesting history, the boom and bust fortunes of its inhabitants more about the gems and minerals in the area than I ever thought I needed to know.

This was well worth the money and time! We learned so much about the area of Jerome. I would definitely take the time to view the movie they show about Jerome. Staff was very friendly and helpful also!

a great first stop to learn a bit of history of the mining town, then ghost town and now a great tourist stop and shop for many things, Southwest native jewelry, pottery, a cold brew with a great band playing some great rock. We are going back again next month when our daughter's family flies down.

The Douglas mansion is somewhat interesting and gives some background on the history of copper mining in the area. Takes about half an hour to see.

This visit gave a good overview but the 7.00 per person was a little pricey. The movie had good information if you could get past the hokey ghost telling the story. It was nice to get the backgroud of the town before visiting.

The park includes the mansion but to tour the mansion and see the video, you need to pay a fee. It was $7 for adults and honestly, I think that was about $2 too much but I understand they need to cover their expenses. The opening video offers a good insight on the boom and bust of the town and... More

If you visit Jerome, you must visit this museum. It was our first stop so we really had background for other attractions in this very well preserved mining town. Although our grandchildren were not with us, I think 10 years+ would do ok.

In such a small town you have to see it all. The history of the town is interesting and it goes over it all. Love the old historic photos.

We were a party of seven including 3 teenagers. All of liked the Mansion, which was built for an owner of the mine. In addition to the artifacts, there is a movie shown about once per hour that is worth seeing. The spokesperson in the movie is a "ghost". The best part is learning about Jerome which it one time...

Definitely do this before going into Jerome. It gives a great picture of what it was and what it is. So many changes... The building itself is very interesting and the view is spectacular. If you are going to Jerome, do not miss this. and by all means watch the video -- not only informative but very entertaining.
