The mansion is not the highlight of this museum, as it is a mining museum. However, there are many interesting things to see in this museum and it is certainly worth a stop on your way into or out of Jerome.

We visited Jerome State Park. The main attraction there is the museum. It is housed in the historic Douglas Mansion. In 1916, Jimmy Douglas, a miner, built the home.

This was an interesting place. Appreciate that the mansion is largely untouched, with a mix of original furnishings and other historical items from the history of Jerome.
This place was recommended by a local. The museum is housed in the Douglas Mansion. Interesting artifacts and information. Well preserved. Loved the short film! Cost $7 pp adult.
The introductory video is a well-done presentation of the founders, profiteers, and the tough working class citizens of Jerome's historical past; great written information, pictures, and artifacts both inside and on the grounds that really bring the unbelievably hard lives and tenacity of the people and this town to life. Highly recommend this as a first stop; spend several hours.
I happened to stop by before making my way into the actual town of Jerome. It really helped me find my way around and decide what I wanted to do once I got into town.
Amazing history up here in this OLD town of Jerome, AZ. The Douglas Mansion is full of artifacts that depict what it was like in this part of the country back in the last 1800's
A fascinating museum at the top of a steep, winding road. Lots of old Mining equipment on display. The video about the early days of Jerome is well worth watching. The entry fee of $7.00 pp is reasonable. Good scenic views. Easy parking.
The Douglas Mansion has some great views. it's a beautiful mansion with a very informative museum housed inside. Allow yourself plenty of time to meander through all the rooms. There is also a 30 min movie on the history of Jerome that's worth watching if you have to time.
