The most charming and informative 15 minute overview film you’ll ever see about the history of a town - and its mining. Small exhibits but well done. $7 for senior admission. Figure on one hour here. Well educated front-desk Park employees - so ask questions.

House and equipment displays are well-preserved and displayed to effectively tell the story of Jerome. Views of the town and mountains are also fantastic. Start your trip to Jerome here.

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).
