We came here is our first stop on a day trip to Jerome. It was $7 per adult for entry. The museum was interesting (if you like museums). I liked seeing all of the old pictures throughout Jerome's history. I recommend watching the video while you're there because it gives you a unique and entertaining view of the quaint little town. I recommend doing this first as it gives you some guidance before exploring the rest of the town.

Nice views of surrounding area, well maintained, cute little museum on the grounds. Can get busy on weekends, dogs are not allowed to enter the grounds( so plan to come without them or a designated person will have to stay behind in the parking lot) Views can be seen from the parking lot so a quick drive by is possible if traveling with pets, just no museum access.

The Jerome State Historic Park is hidden away at the back of a turnoff, but if you are passing through Jerome, it is worth a visit. It consists primarily of old mining equipment, photographs, geography displays, and artifacts from the late 1800s to early 1900s. There are no guides, and it can be a little hot in the summer, even inside. Some of the outdoor plaques are defeat their purpose by being made of reflective metal, the sun's glare making it nearly impossible to read. It will probably take you 20-30 minutes. To me, the price of $7/person may seem a little steep for the experience as the same could get you 2 hours of engaging entertainment at a movie theater; however, your funds will help preserve the history of the town, and you will likely see a few new (old) things. I give it a plain old, average three stars, but if you're already there, it would be a shame to miss it.

Great way to quickly.learn part of the history of Jerome. The .ovie narrated by a ghost was very creative and well done. The plaques outside that helps to identify the different buildings or geologic features around the museum are difficult to use because the landscaping around the plaques has grown so tall as to obstruct the view.

Well, have to say I'm biased. My dad and his brothers were born in Jerome, in what is now the Jerome Grand Hotel. My grandfather worked in the Little Daisy mine, and helped build the infamouse Sliding Jail in Jerome. Always love visiting. My hubby and I spent last night in the Jerome Grand to kick off our week long vacation. If you stay, check out my family history sitting on the lobby coffee table!
