Learn more about mining and the early days of Jerome at this museum located in the heart of town. An inexpensive history lesson before heading down to the Audrey Headframe and Douglas Mansion.

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.
