This Hisotrical Museum is small but good. We went here first before going to the State Park/Douglas Mansion. This helped us to have a better understanding before going to the State Park. It provides good key information about the town and mining.

Pretty good if you like old mining equipment displays and photographs. There's something fascinating about how hard some people worked many years ago. Also something fascinating about how some people lived. Lots of information on the costs of mining to the people and environment.

If I hadn't read about this museum on TA, I would have walked right past it. My son recently did a report on AZ which included its history of copper mining so we decided to make the stop. We didn't have a lot of time--maybe...More

$2 to get in. Small but informative. Lots to read but lots of old pics and really gives you a good feel for the history of this lovely little mountain town. Terrific gift shop too! Beautiful views in Jerome. Loved this little town!
