Usually when we go to the Epitaph, we tour the museum that is in the building but this time, we just picked up our copies of the current paper and the 1880's copy. You just can't make this Tombstone tourist history attraction without getting all... More

But we stopped by to pick up our two free newspapers of the events at the OK corral. Quite a few relics from the past, including old printing presses, printing plates, and relics from our history. Pretty small place to stop by, but it's worth swinging in and checking out what things used to be like

A fun and free museum showing the printed history of a very famous Old West town. Much of the old printing press and reproduction equipment from this paper is still on site.

Original printing presses, typesetting, cameras and other graphics equipment from the 19th century as well as very friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

We came in here because we get a free Tombstone newspaper when we bought our tickets for the OK corral shootout. There are old printing presses and the history of the Epitaph. It was interesting.

There is not a lot to see but people will be amazed at how early newspapers were hand set down to the letter. The little museum was free to enter and if you catch the OK Corral shootout, you get a coupon for a free reprinted vintage paper. Worth 10 minutes or so to walk through.

Not just an amazing printing press! Great old photos and a lot of history for free. Down a side street - but worth the short walk.

The Tombstone Epitaph is just off Allen Street, but worth checking out. Has a nice display of old printing equipment and you receive a free copy of the paper reporting the shootout at the OK Corral as part of the OK Corral ticket package. Some nice old photographs of Tombstone as well. Recommended.
