There is a historical museum in the front with many interesting artifacts but the highlight for us was the rose bush - you have to see it to believe it. The attending man walked us around the bush and we were fascinated by the history behind it. It was great to get away from all of the hokey stuff on... More

Clean, nicely displayed artifacts from a wealth Tombstone family. Adults $5 charge, kids are free. Price was right! Loved the gigantic rose tree. It had started to bloom. Wish we were able to be there 2 weeks later it will be in full bloom then. Girl(6 and 8) and adults alike enjoyed a walk through well kept artifacts and home.

For only $5 you can see the largest rose bush AND some cool historical displays with guns, furniture, clothing and more! Doesn't take long to tour and worth the $5 cost.

A treat for the four of us -- my son and two grandchildren (ages 7 & 9). So much to learn about the Rose Tree Museum itself and to see the worlds largest rose tree in the world is a great experience.

The Rose Tree Museum is really cool to say the least. The main attraction is the shady lady or the “lady banks” rose tree. it was planted in 1886 and... More

Been by this place many times, decided to invest the $ for entrance fee. Well worth the money and time. Tons of history, well laid out, the rose thingy is absolutely incredible. Had a terrific visit with the gentlemen who tends to the plant. Go visit the site and have a good time.

Tombstone is not just a 30 second gunfight, it's about real people who came west and one of them brought a white rose bush from Scotland. The museum catalogs the lives of those people. I went there in December when the bush was not blooming and I am told that in the spring when it is blooming you can smell... More

Same as above. Basically, a bookstore and am not sure what is authentic from that era and not. The help was friendly, but I'd stay away from the dark stain on 1 of the walls.
