We visited the Douglas Mansion on our first visit to Jerome. We were expecting a tour through a historical home and it really was more of a museum. You did get a map of the place so you knew what room you were standing in...More

I traveled with my two teen sons. Nothing here that you need to see, unless you're really into turn of the century mining paraphernalia.

This museum/house is ok. The best part is the video regarding the town (it's about 20 min). If you love mining, rocks, then you will like this a great deal. I did not find the Douglas family as impressive as others.

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).
