If you visit Jerome, you must visit this museum. It was our first stop so we really had background for other attractions in this very well preserved mining town. Although our grandchildren were not with us, I think 10 years+ would do ok.

In such a small town you have to see it all. The history of the town is interesting and it goes over it all. Love the old historic photos.

We were a party of seven including 3 teenagers. All of liked the Mansion, which was built for an owner of the mine. In addition to the artifacts, there is a movie shown about once per hour that is worth seeing. The spokesperson in the movie is a "ghost". The best part is learning about Jerome which it one time...

Definitely do this before going into Jerome. It gives a great picture of what it was and what it is. So many changes... The building itself is very interesting and the view is spectacular. If you are going to Jerome, do not miss this. and by all means watch the video -- not only informative but very entertaining.

This is a must if you really want the goods on the town of Jerome. We really enjoyed it. Listen to the "ghost" video, and it will enlighten you as to a little of what it must of been like. Interesting. I really enjoyed it. The views are spectacular.

My husband and I took a self guided tour of this mansion while on vacation in Jerome. There is a lovely video in a back room that tells you the history of the town. I highly recommend visiting!

The Douglas Mansion, also known as Jerome State Historic Park, offers a good overview of the history of mining in and around quirky, hilly Jerome. A diorama offers a 3D view of the two major mines, while the photos, artifacts and exhibits chronicle the major figures and events in Jerome's history. A 30-minute film is well worth seeing. Perched on... More

The mansion houses the historic mining museum of the town of Jerome. Watch the video for the history of the town. A must see for travelers to Jerome.

The mansion is not the highlight of this museum, as it is a mining museum. However, there are many interesting things to see in this museum and it is certainly worth a stop on your way into or out of Jerome. Apparently, you can visit the building at the end of the driveway, although we did not realize this until... More

We visited Jerome State Park. The main attraction there is the museum. It is housed in the historic Douglas Mansion. In 1916, Jimmy Douglas, a miner, built the home. His mine was called the Little Daisy Mine. Mr. Douglas designed the house to be a home for his family as well as a hotel for mining officials and investors. As... More
