Our family of five had such a fun day in Jerome exploring the shops, taking in the sights and learning about the history. The drive to Jerome from Cottonwood was insane. We drove a few miles to the Ghost Town, which created suspense and was...More

We drove up to the Jerome museum on a Sunday afternoon. 3 generations of our family were on the trip. The 3 kids [ages 14-17] found that we probably stayed at the museum a little too long. However, the museum has a lot of information...More

Waste of time. Never saw so much junk before. Not sure why they have any customers. So many better options.

Very educational! A lot of old cars and trucks and tools. Neat history. Easy to walk around and strollers would be fine.

I learned more from this museum about Arizona in general, and mining in particular, then I ever read in books. A real insight how things were in the late 1800's.

Drive through Jerome, in the hills behind you will find the Gold King Mine. Mostly old vehicles and items left from mining. Some old buildings and a really cool steam powered saw mill. If your lucky they will fire it up while your there.

I personally can't answer that. But you can call the souvenir store I believe and they can answer that question. You can go to the website for the info.
