House and equipment displays are well-preserved and displayed to effectively tell the story of Jerome. Views of the town and mountains are also fantastic. Start your trip to Jerome here.

A great museum with lots of information about copper mining. This was largest copper mine in the country and provided copper from pennies to wiring. It also has great models showing the mine shafts and depths. Great history.

Yes if the weather is cold or rainy this was perfect. The video you can see before walking through was extremely well produced and written.

A good way to learn about copper mining, the Douglas family and history of a very unique town- Jerome. The town is a definite and this helps complete the picture.

the fee is $7.00 per adult. Don't remember if there was a break for seniors. Hours are 8:30 - 5:00. The museum closes 15 minutes earlier than the park (it's gated).
