Historic - but not much to it

This is worth a look if you are there anyway - but not a whole lot to see. Old presses from the 1800s and reproduction newspapers is about it. Kids will be bored with it.

And you get a free newspaper. The Epitaph admission is free with the ticket to the Gunfight at the OK Corral. This is a small town but we had trouble finding the Epitaph and wandered a couple of blocks before finally locating it. Once we did, we found it very interesting and were able to show our grandson (who has... More

This is where we picked up our newspaper with the voucher from the O.K. Corral show. Walk through the back and take a look at the old printing process. It doesn't take long.

The day we were there we were given a ticket by one of the wagon drivers for a free copy of the paper they sell to tourists. When we went to get our paper, the gal working there refused to give them to us stating that they were not free and that the wagon driver had no business telling us... More

No one in Tombstone has permission to distribute tickets for free copies of The Tombstone Epitaph newspaper. This visitor was badly misinformed and should be blaming the driver of the vehicle who lied to him about the so-called "free tickets" and not the Epitaph staff. More

You will receive a copy of the newspaper reprinted with the account of the gunfight at the OK corral. We also personally bought copies of "The life and times of Wyatt Earp", "The life and times of Doc Holiday", and one about the prostitutes. Each of those were $2 a piece.

My husband and I were at the Epitaph last week. While he visited the museum, I talked with the "publisher" of the paper. He was very I threshing, and thrilled to share his knowledge. It was easy for him to talk me into buying a year's subscription to the Tombstone Epitaph along with several current issues. This was a fun... More

We went to get a copy of the Tombstone Epitaph and see the museum. It was a very interesting museum and has a bench for us to test!

This was a well spent 30 minutes at reading and viewing newspaper printers and newspaper clippings. Would highly recommend this spot.

Most people think of tombstone and think about the gunfight. What we forget is the background of the story. The epitaph museum fills in the blanks and offers up other history as well. You have the story of how a newspaper was made in the 1880's in the frontier and then you also have the story of the man behind... More
