this former home is a good place to start your visit of Jerome which in its hay day had around 15,000 people in its hay day. The copper ore along with the silver and gold ran out. People left over the years, finally just about 15 hardy souls remained. Some 10 or 15 years ago it started making a small... More

Be prepared to pay a fee, but it is minimal and worth every cent. Watch the video offered first so you get a true sense of the history behind Jerome. The museum is well done, and offers a large variety of interesting displays. The museum was actually the house of the mines owner.

For a look at the history of Jerome, this is your best bet. The introductory video, which runs pretty much continuously, is 30 minutes long, which might seem like too much -- but it is well done, and often amusing. After that, the exhibits in the rooms make a lot of sense, and the mansion overall offers good views of... More

This is a museum of the history of the copper mines. Views of the valley are great. Cost is $7.00 per person.

Although many people here seem to be reviewing the town of Jerome (definitely worth the visit), the Jerome State Historic Park is actually the Douglas Mansion and surrounding grounds. It too is worth a couple of hours of your vacation time. This is especially true on a dull, rainy day like the one we visited on. The Douglas Mansion has... More

A revived ghost town from the copper/silver/gold mining era for this community, restored as a artist colony town and doing very well at it...I do suggest you be sure of your driving skills..the road is narrow and has switchbacks.

Not good. People not friendly. Shops not worth the trip and employees rude. Waste of time. Shops redundant and over priced. Difficult to get to and time better spent in other areas of AZ.

It's worth the winding drive to this little piece of history - nice to chat to the locals in the town stores and take in the views and let your imagination take hold in this historic place. Life must have been tough in Jerome back in the mining days. Living in a shack on the side of the mountain as... More

We pictured it to be a real ghost town, similar to a Western movie set....basically its old buildings and alot of shops and restaurants. Its a good place to visit for a couple of hours and have some lunch. Views are nice.

Get off the highway for a few minutes and enjoy breathtaking views of mountains. Jerome is perched high above a beautiful valley and has lots of cool shops to check out.
