This famous rose bush in Tombstone AZ lives up to its reputation. We were very fortunate to see it still in bloom and the viewing platform is awesome so you can get a picture of the top of the bush as well as see the magnitude of its astounding size. It's a must see and only found in one place... More

My wife and I both felt this museum was a great attraction to visit, especially as the house belonged too, and was contributed by one family since the nearly 1900s. Only a small museum, but a lot of photos and artifacts that attracted the attention. Of course there is also the rose bush, which although wasnt in bloom, was a... More

Never knew about this until my husband went to see it! They had to add fencing atop to spread out the roses! Over six feet in stump and you can buy sprigs off of the tree itself! Absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to go back. And see it in full bloom again, it will amaze you!

We only went to this attraction because a friend of mine had mentioned it, but we are glad we took the time to do so. The rose "bush" is gigantic. It grew from a little cutting that came from Scotland. I had no idea a rose bush could grow this large. Take time to walk through the museum rooms to... More

My wife and I only travel to Tombstone in May of each year, so we have never gotten to see the rose tree in bloom. So when we first toured this museum, we expected to see a colorful rose bush - not realizing that this bush is actually a tree that covers over 2,000 square feet of surface area. There... More

This was something we just decided to stop at while here, and I am so glad we did. The rose tree itself was gorgeous, but I was glad to get there early as it was beginning to fill with bees as we left. It was not expensive to see, and well worth the money!

We visited the week after the blossoms finished. Still amazing. Make sure you get a view from above the rose tree. The Museum has some great photos and good information. My 5 year old was interested in the exhibits. Good gift shop. This is my 6 time to visit... never gets old hah hah

My friend had heard this rose bush was listed in the Guinness World Records so we checked it out and paid the $5 admission. WELL WORTH THE PRICE!!!! The rose bush is just AMAZING!!!!! You can't believe!!! What a treasure! And the fellow taking admission personally took us around the museum to give us more information about the previous owners,... More
