I was impressed by the actual equipment used to print the newspaper. There is a monthly edition still being printed there, although not on the original equipment. Actual copies of the original edition depicting the gunfight are available. It is a free museum.

This is the only place out side of the cemetery that doesn't charge you for every little thing. Again, nice informative staff and they are clearly working with the OK Corral (the only reason we ended up there was because we got a coupon from the OK Corral) with lots to look at and learn about. Wish there had been... More

The Epitaph Museum has just two rooms. The collection consists mostly of old newspaper printing presses and equipment and old articles from the newspaper. There is also a lot of information about the life of John Clum, who started the newspaper. The museum is free, so it's worth stopping in and taking a look, but there's really not that much... More

The museum was great. The vendor was knowledgeable and friendly. By the end of our little tour, he had people captivated with his stories. Very nice guy.

If you saw the gunfight, go get a copy of the next day's paper. Part of the charm of the town is walking the boardwalk anyway. Enjoy.

This museum shared the history of Tombstone and the way they produced the newspaper in those days. If you visit the O.K. Corral gunfight they give you a free ticket to collect a copy of the newspaper of those early Wyatt Earp days.

Not a huge museum, but you get a copy of the Tombstone Epitaph from 10/26/1881. Doesn't take very long to go through the museum, but you learn a lot about Tombstone and the Epitaph.

We ran through this museum in a matter of minutes. Interesting information and displays related to newspaper printing from long ago and with paid admission to OK Corral gunfight site you get a free newspaper here. If you've got time wander in to check out but if you are short on time it's okay to skip. Staff was very friendly!

Lots of trinkets not related to the newspaper. They do give a free paper to people who have visited other museums. Their museum is free admittance. I loved to see the original paper press on display.
