I visited the Douglas Mansion in Jerome in February 2019. The first thing was a very interesting film on the history of Jerome as a copper mining and boom town. The town of Jerome eventually went bust but has made a comeback with tourism. The...More

The Douglas family’s Mining Magnate’s Mansion has thankfully been preserved for posterity and now serves as housing the Museum in the Jerome State Historical Park. You’ll visit it & actually be in it when you visit the Park. Fascinating!

Mansion displays fully relate the mining history of Jerome and the Douglas family. Am glad the town has opened the home as a museum as you can get the feel of the mining era. A short film explains the era and is very informative. Our...More

This house was home to one of the most prominent men during the Jerome mining boom. It has ample parking and has a very informative short movie about the life and history of this influencial man.

Very interesting history of this area and community. Visited the shops in the area and stopped for a cold brew where all the miners drank in the last century. Cool visit and worth the drive from Sedona.

The most charming and informative 15 minute overview film you’ll ever see about the history of a town - and its mining. Small exhibits but well done. $7 for senior admission. Figure on one hour here. Well educated front-desk Park employees - so ask questions.

This is maintained tribute to mining especially in AZ and Jerome area. The mansion has a few rooms that have remained intact such as the library and huge second floor bathroom. The views are stunning and you’ll learn more than you could ever need to...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).
