Inexpensive Museum Worth Seeing

Interesting but small, but for the minimal fee it is worth seeing. Everything having to do with mining and a variety of information about the history of the area and Arizona.

This museum has great displays of mining in the Sedona area as well as excellent portrayals of the local history. The docent was quite informative and helpful.

At the back of the interesting gift shop is a wonderful museum. Only $2 for seniors, it truly is a must. I could have spent 2 hours reading the old articles. It is also much, much larger than it initially appears. You get a real feel for the characters that called it home.

Quaint little museum with a nice setup. Good artifacts and details about the people of Jerome and how their wealth was developed. Show the rise and fall of the population. Good way to get a quick review of the town for a few dollars

We stopped to check out the copper jewelry and couldn't resist the $1 admission (we're seniors). But even at the $2 admission it's a very interesting exhibit. We've paid more for less. For a town like Jerome, with all its 'colorful' history, this museum depicts the transformation from isolated mining town to hippie invasion of the '80's right down to... More

Enjoyed our visit. Definitely worth the $2 admission. The walk through the mine is really great and I enjoyed the exhibit on script and brothels.

This $2 museum is a gem. It is well-laid out and displays an interesting history of the town of Jerome. Plan on spending about a 1/2 hour or so. There is a shop in the front of the building and the museum is at the back.

We enjoyed the museum and the shop. We also enjoyed talking with the person staffing the museum. The museum offered a slice of life that I found to be very interesting, from what it was like to attend high school in Jerome and then what it was like when boys went of to war. I was also intrigued by the... More
