  • Not exactly a tourist attraction even though the town wants it to be. There is printing press museum in the back of the shop. You have to be really old to appreciate this attraction.  more »

  • Very knowledgeable staff and lots of newspapers to read and choose from. Another excellent place to stop if you are in Tombstone!
  • Thought provoking historical site from 1880. They actually wrote articles on the gunfight at the O.K. Corral and of course, Doc Holliday and the infamous Wyatt Earp. They are still running a newspaper today. Interesting exhibits on display.
  • Great little museum with an old printing press and historic newpaper replicas. And it's free!
  • Spend some time to speak with the curator. Really educational and neat. Old machines are so cool to look at.
  • They opened almost 20mins late; very unprofessional. There was a line of people annoyed waiting for a store/museum that should have already been opened.

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.
