Nice small museum.

We got in for free with our OK Corral admittance. They give you a free newspaper. Very interesting memorabilia and the shop clerk is very knowledgeable. Can't complain about free!

There is so much to look at and read about in the Tombstone Epitaph. Spend some time and soak it all in. We stopped by to get our free Tombstone newspaper( included in the price of the Ok Corral re-enactment) and spent some time walking around and buying some souvenirs to bring home.

This is another attraction that helps the visitor get a mental picture of the old Tombstone. It was interesting, and like some of the other attractions was worth the time. We received tickets to it along with another purchase and thought we got our money's worth. I recommend it as a part of a visit to the town too tough... More

What will all the gunfight stuff, who would've asked the question "who started this town"? The very interesting story of the person who started Tombstone is delivered up at the Museum at the Tombstone Epitaph office. In addition the story of typesetting is told in words and displays of machinery. Granted, none of it is done in multimedia with buttons... More

This is a great exhibit that explains how early newspapers were printed, with real newspapers from Tombstone history. No charge.

It was wonderful to see those old printing presses. Lots of old press machinery there. The displays were interesting to see. Great place to visit.

It is free for a good reason. The displays appear to have not changed in years. The man in period dress barely noticed us and seemed more interested in his laptop. There is a door open to the back and it looks like a lot of stuff piled up in there. A lot of potential but not much effort to... More

A nice little printing museum. Presses from a time span of about 100 years. Staff was friendly and helpful. There wasn't much for information about the displays though. Price of admission was with the shoot out at OK Corral

If you purchase tickets for the OK Corral show you get free copies of the newspaper printed about the Earp gunfight. The exhibits were interesting but the building is small and it was a little crowded the day I visited.

Not terribly exciting, but if you're into journalism you may get more out of it. Oldest still publishing newspaper in Tombstone. See the news articles about the gunfight at the OK Corral and the subsequent trial.
