We missed seeing the rose tree in bloom but it is still very impressive. We enjoyed this and the staff were friendly.

Although, there were no blooms of this oldest and largest rose in the world, It felt good to see it. The white rose potpourri that I bought smells so fragrant, that,I can just imagine how beautiful the blooms will be in April & May, and I might go back there. And the lady who was in charge of the place... More

When I say the flier for this museum, I just had to see it. This is a nice place to visit and there are some interesting items on display

We loved the museum because of all the displays that were in it. See the "famous" Rose Tree was a highlight of this trip. I'm glad we decided to go to this museum. Definitely worth the stop and admittance fee.

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
