This old newspaper has been around for over one hundred years. The museum was free and it had lots of interesting old printing equipment.

Part of tour if you buy tickets for the OK shootout. Interesting view of the old newpaper operation and a lot of history of the man who started it.

This was our last stop before we left to go home. I wish we would have had more time to look at everything but if you like history, you need to check this place out. We signed up to their newspaper and now we get a monthly paper giving us more information about the history of Tombstone.

If you're interested in the history of Tombstone and the American West, this is worth a visit. It's a small museum and doesn't take much time to see the displays. After visiting the OK Corral you can take the short walk here to get a free copy of the 1881 Tombstone Epitaph newspaper about the shootout.

We thought this was pretty neat . It felt like you were back in time . There is also some excellent local historic displays inside. Entrance is free so don't miss it.

After receiving your free copy of the Tombstone Epitaph that comes with the Shootout at the OK Corral, take a few minutes to wander down to the newspaper building. It is free, just allow a few minutes, most of the displays have placards telling what the items were used for. Nice to see the history of the printing presses, how... More

Really, it is just an old newspaper. Not really worth the walk to get to. The displays are very limited in what they cover, and little fo the history of the mines is presented

The curator at the front desk is very knowledgable on all artifacts. Great history on the safe in front entrance area. Lots of wonderful books available also . Equipment is self guided with information stands expalining the history and piece of equipment.No entrance fee which is nice to see that some history is free.

It's a look back at the recorded events as told by the reporters of the day. The accounts that took place and how papers were produced was very interesting.
