Just off the main road it's a wonderful respit where you can view old printing presses, type setting and even old newspapers. And you can do so at your leisure without someone asking for a $10 tour fee. Plus the lady in there is friendly and full of information. We bought two books in there about local history.

Time is limited for those that are traveling to Tombstone. We can here to get our free paper. Otherwise not worth the trip down the side road to get there. There are more interesting things to see and do. If you are camping or staying in the area for awhile then I'd go there for sure.

Bit of a thrill to be in the actual home of the famous Tombstone Epitaph. Informational displays interesting and well-worth checking out.

It's free and included with the OK Corral shoot-out. We liked reading about some historical events... if you like history, check this place out too.

If you went to the Gunfight at the OK Corral then you have received a ticket to get a copy of the newspaper on that historic day. Make time to go over and pick it up (around the corner from Crystal Palace Salon). Friendly, helpful lady behind the desk - quite interesting to see all the old presses.

Thus is a great place to visit if you love history, newspapers or the process of creating and reporting the news. While my husband and I enjoyed this site, it was not our kids, 9, 7 and 3 favorite place. NOT because it was poorly presented etc., it was just a place more for adults than children. I would love...

It is free to go into this small museum of frontier printing equipment. They sell lots of copies of old newspapers for a small fee. I enjoyed reading old newspaper accounts about issues of the period and of the history of the old west. This place is well worth the time of a visit.

I found this place absolutely fascinating……don't rise it and read through all the exhibits. What an exciting life the founder of the "Epitaph" lived….they should make a movie about him. Amazing.

This was a great experience in a historic town. I'm a history nut and everyone at the paper answered in a friendly manor. You should visit and don't forget to get a copy of the newspaper.

Great place to visit. Loved seeing all the old ways they printed newspapers. If you're in Tombstone, you must visit this place.
