This is proof that good things come in small packages. In spite of the small space the museum delivers a good, comprehensive look at Jerome's history as a mining town. Compact and easy to follow this is a quick way to learn about Jerome. Less...More

For the price, it was great. Self guided, no fancy electronic gadgets, but they cover so many facets of life in Jerome. Schools, the mines, law enforcement, bordello and even a walk through mine shaft. I wish we had more time allotted.

Take some pictures of Arizona history. It just takes a little bit of time to walk and also see the sliding jail and Cuban Queen Bordello.
