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.

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.
