This museum/house is ok. The best part is the video regarding the town (it's about 20 min). If you love mining, rocks, then you will like this a great deal. I did not find the Douglas family as impressive as others.

The Douglas mansion was very interesting. The view from the house is beautiful. It is a part of the state park.

The video is the highlight of this attraction. It recounts the history of Jerome and it's mining past through the eyes of a 'ghost'. Cute and informative. The house is currently being refurbished but that doesn't take away from the touring. Def visit before visiting...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).
