  • This is by far and away the best display of firearms anywhere in Tombstone. The rose tree is amazing as well (we bought a clipping), but the glass-encased displays of firearms was really wonderful.  more »
  • The museum has some period rooms and furniture but the focus is on the rose bush in the courtyard. It is so large that, when trimmed, a couple of truckloads are needed to haul away the trimmings.  more »
  • The first time I went to Tombstone I skipped the museum and tree viewing...and that was a mistake. This is super cool, and worth the nominal $5 fee.  more »

  • From a root cutting of a 'White Lady Banksia Rose,' which travelled from Scotland to Tombstone; the largest rose bush was born. We enjoyed seeing this phenomenon. In addition, the museum was quite interesting and informative. It was quite a surprise to see a picture of the proprietor's family with the infamous Geronimo. The family's beautiful furniture and china is displayed here, as well.
  • Interesting museum that shared history of the Tombstone area and one families life in Tombstone. The true star was the rose tree. It was huge and has a wonderful site.
  • An absolute must see. Wow. Amazing and the history in this little place is well worth $5
  • I'm a loyal fan of the plant world and this 8,000 sq. ft. Banksia Rose tree is stunning. Planted somewhere back in 1885, "Ripley's Believe It Or Not" confirms that this is the world's largest. How is it possible, you ask.....
  • Over priced tourist scam. Rude employee. Gift shop is ridiculously over priced junk.

Where to stay in Tombstone

Tombstone may bill itself as the "Town Too Tough to Die," but there's nothing too tough about its accommodations. This frontier town offers a good selection of affordable inns and small motels providing every comfort of home in or near the historic central district. Most of the town's bed and breakfasts provide cable TV, free Wi-Fi, and access to a private swimming pool. For a more rustic "Wild West" experience, pitch a tent at one of Tombstone's campgrounds.
