My girlfriend and I visited Jerome, AZ for a day as we were staying in Sedona. The drive was pretty easy and the scenery was refreshingly dichotomous from our typical Wisconsin backdrop. Upon reaching the small derelict mining town, we first stopped at the Douglas...More

Yes if the weather is cold or rainy this was perfect. The video you can see before walking through was extremely well produced and written.

If you enjoy learning about local history, this place is a treasure. Fascinating to learn about Jerome's history and copper mining. Don't miss the 3 dimensional model of the actual mines and the video!

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.

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).
