A decent little stop to learn some history of the Jerome AZ mining town. Once called the wickedest city in America. It had prostitution, drinking, gambling, murders, and at one time an average of 47 miner deaths per day ( so I’m told). As note,...More

On the outside, it has gorgeous views, it's pretty high up in the mountains. We went here before catching the Verde Valley Train ride. It was unimpressive and boring, unless you have an interest in copper mining.

Small, wonderful, filled with local artifacts, and storyboards to inform. $2 admission is well worth your time and dollar. Enjoyed on a rainy day, I learned so much in a very short period of time.

We took a day trip to this little town. My youngest who is 9 loved the museum. It was a cool thing to see.

The admission for seniors is $1. This is one of those small town museums that prove to be very interesting. In the 1920's the population was 15,000. Now it is 500. The museum tells the story of Jerome and its people.

We loved this little museum. It's really small and very fun to go through. It tells a good story about the town and that era. Can't beat the $1 price for seniors.

This is an outdoor museum and has an exhibition of the mine head and ancient machinery used. You can look down the mine shaft and get an idea of how low the miners had to descend. It is amazing to think that in the early...More

This small museum does a good job at telling the history of Jerome. The items that stood out in my mind were a typewriter with no shift key (therefore, an upper and lower set of keys) as well as a Chinese washing machine. Admission for...More
