The Douglas mansion was very interesting. The view from the house is beautiful. It is a part of the state park.

The video is the highlight of this attraction. It recounts the history of Jerome and it's mining past through the eyes of a 'ghost'. Cute and informative. The house is currently being refurbished but that doesn't take away from the touring. Def visit before visiting...More

This was well worth the money and time! We learned so much about the area of Jerome. I would definitely take the time to view the movie they show about Jerome. Staff was very friendly and helpful also!

The Douglas mansion is somewhat interesting and gives some background on the history of copper mining in the area. Takes about half an hour to see.

This visit gave a good overview but the 7.00 per person was a little pricey. The movie had good information if you could get past the hokey ghost telling the story. It was nice to get the backgroud of the town before visiting.

The park includes the mansion but to tour the mansion and see the video, you need to pay a fee. It was $7 for adults and honestly, I think that was about $2 too much but I understand they need to cover their expenses. The...More

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).
