“If you are into history of printing, this is perfect!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

First off, if you do not like history, or have no interest in the history of printing, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU! They have some really cool displays. You could spend hours reading the old news articles from the past. Everything was very well presented and not too overwhelming. Best of all, it is FREE. Definately worth the stop if the subject matter is of interest to you.

“Must love history of printing to appreciate”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This museum shows how they printed newspapers back in the day. It was neat to see the actual machinery used but I could not appreciate the exhibits to its fullest because of my own lack of interest in such.

“Excellent Historical Writing”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This was a great free stop in Tombstone. The writers for the historical editions of the Epitaph are some of the best true Wild West writers in America. The gift shop had the best prices of any we found in town

“Quick and Informative”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is one tour that will not take a huge chunk out of your day but will leave you with lots to think about.
