I enjoyed this museum and the film that started just as I arrived was cute and informative. You'll learn a lot about the history of the area which was quite interesting.

This out-of-the-way State Park is a treasure trove of fun and unique experiences into life in the 1880's into the early to mid 1990's and beyond really. The little town of Jerome, was and still IS a travel destination even today. In this small town you can enjoy every manner of a travelers delight from a gourmet meal in the restaurant in the Grand Hotel ($$$) to a more modest variety of American, Italian, French or yes, Mexican cuisine. Some really good restaurants are situated in Jerome to begin, or be a part of or, to conclude your visit. While you are there be sure to visit my family's Winery, "The Jerome Winery" the longest operating, and 1st original Winery 🍷 in Jerome. Enjoy my Brother-in-laws great variety of delectable wine varietals and Blends. Tell Tony, your server/sommelier that Isaiah sent you and Enjoy!!!!
Really enjoyed this park. It’s smaller but unlike the Riordan mansion state park, your entrance fee allows you to see the grounds and house. Cool gem and mineral room with a small flourescent light room to show some mineral that glow. Lots of history—and interesting dioramas of the mining under Jerome. Don’t miss the Audrey Headlamp Park that you can visit for free on the way up to the Jerome state park for more mining context.
