If I hadn't read about this museum on TA, I would have walked right past it. My son recently did a report on AZ which included its history of copper mining so we decided to make the stop. We didn't have a lot of time--maybe 20 minutes--but all four of us thought it was interesting. It was time and a... More

$2 to get in. Small but informative. Lots to read but lots of old pics and really gives you a good feel for the history of this lovely little mountain town. Terrific gift shop too! Beautiful views in Jerome. Loved this little town!

This is a great bargain. As a senior, I paid $1.00 to go into the museum. Is is relatively small, but has a lot of good information that can be viewed in a short time. Unfortunately, I did not have a lot of time to really get into the available information. I would like to go back and spend more... More

This museum provides a historic portrait of Jerome in its mining heyday. There are articles to read of past events, photos of the town and inhabitants and you get a real feel of what Jerome was like.

It is deceiving at first glance but a dollar gets you behind the swinging doors. The history of the mining town is documented inside.

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
