Our group really enjoyed visiting this museum. The video is definitely worth watching....cute & informative. Loved looking at the rocks under the fluorescent lights. FYI....The souvenirs are cheaper in Jerome than in Sedona.

Pretty expansive museum, with some great exhibits outlining the history of the mining industry, and a town that went from nothing, to boom, to being sleep again. Catch the movie featuring a "ghost"- really informative.

Fascinating, intriguing and educational. A small entry fee required. A factional and photo documentation of the trials and tribulations of the mining history of this area.

This was most definitely a high-light of our holiday. Remarkably well structured history of America's very own industrial revolution. The photographs and many displays brought together a detailed story of not just the copper mining, but also how the people lived and prospered.
