The admission for seniors is $1. This is one of those small town museums that prove to be very interesting. In the 1920's the population was 15,000. Now it is 500. The museum tells the story of Jerome and its people.

We loved this little museum. It's really small and very fun to go through. It tells a good story about the town and that era. Can't beat the $1 price for seniors.

This is an outdoor museum and has an exhibition of the mine head and ancient machinery used. You can look down the mine shaft and get an idea of how low the miners had to descend. It is amazing to think that in the early...More

This small museum does a good job at telling the history of Jerome. The items that stood out in my mind were a typewriter with no shift key (therefore, an upper and lower set of keys) as well as a Chinese washing machine. Admission for...More

This is proof that good things come in small packages. In spite of the small space the museum delivers a good, comprehensive look at Jerome's history as a mining town. Compact and easy to follow this is a quick way to learn about Jerome. Less...More

So many great attractions here in Jerome. Definitely worth the drive up to check out this big little town. All the ghost sighting and paranormal activity definitely make it an interesting visit.

The museum has a good display of the town and history. It isn't worth the $7 each for admission however. Jerome is a place you should go at least once, we will go back again since there are interesting places to see and eat at....More
