They have an abundance of antique printing presses to look at and also old papers from Tombstone in its glory days. If you watch the gunfight you are given a free reprint of an old newspaper also.

great little museum and one of the few spots that will tell you about Geronimo time in that area of Arizona. Plus if you buy a ticket to the OK Coral gun fight you get a ticket for a free paper.

We went from the OK corral to the newspaper office. While I'm not a great fan of this kind of thing, I found it interesting enough.

You get, with your admission to the gunfight - a free copy of the newspaper with the write-up of the gunfight as a souvenir. There are historic displays in the newspaper office, too.

It was neat to walk in/through, especially since it was free, but honestly not a whole lot to see besides some old printing equipment and old photos/posters hanging on the walls.

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.
