Short wait due to restriction on number of people in the building at one time due to COVID19. Very nice 30 minute film on the history of Jerome and the surrounding mining operations. It is in the Douglas Mansion and they had some very nice rooms with artifacts and the history of Jerome. Half price for military.

Thank you Andrea from Louisiana for coming to Arizona's State Parks during a global pandemic and being disappointed that you had to wait 30 minutes to walk into a museum in Jerome to further the spread of Covid-19. The rangers have no choice but to work because the governor will not close anything down in Arizona, despite the massive surge, lack of hospital space left for the ill, and the devastating death count. If the rangers don't work, they get fired and don't get unemployment; so, there they are, trying not to get sick and take it home to their families so that you can look at pretty things. I hope your entitled little self survived the trauma of the wait and the rudeness of a stressed, overworked ranger at the park. Jerome State Park is gorgeous and has two super cool guys working there. If you don't want to wait, and if you enjoy spreading the virus, come now. If you want to wait a few months when people have been vaccinated, that would be better.

Most of the reviews are glowing, so we were eager to check this place out with our (2 couples) three children. Maybe our experience on 12/26/20 at about 1:40 is a rare occurrence. The ranger at the desk was rude. A sign outside said an hour wait, yet people walked in right past us. We had been waiting for about 30 minutes. When we got to the desk and we're told there would be a wait, we explained that we had been waiting and the other people walked right past us and were admitted. With an attitude, he responded, "ok well you need to come talk to me." Well there was no sign saying "come talk to me," it said to wait. It was rude and unfair. The view is nice. Glad we got to experience that, but we were very disappointed.This was the ONLY park, state or national, in Arizona that an employee was rude.

Loved visiting Jerome State Historic Park. The mansion was fun. Some rooms were kept as "rooms", others were transformed into displays. Lots of interesting material to read. The gem and mineral room was awesome. Fun to walk around the grounds. Beautiful views in every direction. Dogs are welcome on the grounds outside of the mansion area. There is a small picnic area that we brought the dogs to and had lunch. Highly recommend going here!

What a beautiful view from the grounds of this state park. We are fairly new to Arizona and even though we've been to Jerome more than once, it was interesting to learn the history of this once vibrant copper town. Be sure to watch the introductory movie. From the grounds, you'll also get a view of what was once the Little Daisy Hotel, the structure built to house miners. When we asked the Park Ranger about it he told us it was refurbished as a private residence & it was recently sold at auction. We took his suggestion and googled it. Just type in Little Daisy Hotel and look for the auction site.
