  • Stopped in to look around and get my free copy of the paper (comes with O.K. Corral gunfight tickets). Didn't have enough time to read about everything but it was a nice look into the past.

  • It is great to see how we first received the news and there is wish to still see the newspaper in action. A lot of historical equipment to view. A quiet break from the gunfighting!

  • Very cool place to visit and see more of Tombstone's history. Also, if you visit the OK Corral and buy a ticket there, then you can receive a free souvenir here. The staff here are very nice and full of wonderful information.
  • If you buy tickets to go see the OK corral show, tickets to the Historama and Epitaph are included. The Epitaph was a cute little building and had some cool machinery from the olden days. It's very small so it doesn't take long to go thru.
  • Really cool little museum. They have all the original printing presses and ink plates. Several historic prints have been maintained in glass cases. Staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. **You can receive a free reprint of the 1881 newspaper, with the original gunfight reports, if you attend the re-enactment at the O.K Corral.
  • The woman who worked there was a wonderful asset to this little gem. Loved her history. As a young girl in school I learned how to set type and work a printing press. Very educational experience.
  • Really cool piece of history! Lots of old newspapers to buy, and a lot of old printing presses on display. Worth a walk around town to see!
