“Brief, but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

No charge for viewing. It was a self guided tour of the newspaper office with printing presses and pictures. There was a detailed story of John Clum, the editor, that was very interesting. Some interesting souvenirs and books in the gift shop.

“Free!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

There isn't much that is free to see in Tombstone, but this was. The old presses were interesting and the old newspapers were great, though you need glasses to read them.

“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

If you get the combo ticket at the OK Corral, you can take home a souvenier copy of the paper. Examples of the printing presses are in the back. Very educational. Free admission.

“Neat building and newspaper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This building was a very old building with a lot of interesting articles/signs/photos inside. We got a souvenir newspaper from 1881 and another one from 2012. It was neat to compare the two papers.
