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.

This was a quick stop as part of our visit to Jerome. We would love to come back and go through the whole museum. If you are into mining history of the area and have the afternoon. This would be a great place to visit.

This was so full of information on how the miners lived-the good, the bad, the lives of the women-everyone. Really got our eyes opened on what hardships they endured. Really rough living for all of them. So happy to have visited such a unique town....More

Excellent museum and the 30 minute video is very informative. Lots of interesting exhibits and you can look down one of the old shafts! Walk around the town after visiting the museum.

I enjoyed going to the mining museum. It has a lot of good information about the history of the town. The museum takes about 45 minutes to go through. I would recommend going to the museum before visiting other parts of the town.

This Hisotrical Museum is small but good. We went here first before going to the State Park/Douglas Mansion. This helped us to have a better understanding before going to the State Park. It provides good key information about the town and mining.
