The curator at the front desk is very knowledgable on all artifacts. Great history on the safe in front entrance area. Lots of wonderful books available also . Equipment is self guided with information stands expalining the history and piece of equipment.No entrance fee which is nice to see that some history is free.

It's a look back at the recorded events as told by the reporters of the day. The accounts that took place and how papers were produced was very interesting.

It was a great place to read about the history of the area and watch the video of how newspapers were set up and printed at that time.

A fascinating look into the mechanics of early newspaper printing. Just imagine if you were one of the worker back in the day that have messed up on ONE lettering after finishing the whole metal press plate, plus backwards (mirrored).

My friends and I visited the Epitaph office to pick up our free copy of the historic paper as part of our ticket price at the OK Corral.

We enjoyed the visit to the Tombstone Epitaph since we got to see how the newspaper was printed in the 1800. They have an exhibition of different types of presses. There you can acquire the newspaper printed after the gunfight at the OK Corral and read the view of different people. The lady in charge was helpful and very sweet.
