The original 1880s Tombstone Epitaph printing press is on display as soon as you walk in the Epitaph Museum's front door, together with a video showing how the paper was printed on this press in the 1880s. Additional original printing equipment of the time is also on display as are original 1880s copies of The Tombstone Epitaph and other Tombstone... More

This is a very small museum which will only take about 15-20 minutes to visit, but the best part is...it's free! It has a lot of antique newspaper equipment to see, plus many displays of articles that were once published by this paper. It's very interesting to look at.

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.
