This was an ok place to go through. I would not make it a priority on my to do list, but the presses are pretty cool to look at. I was a little disappointed as some of the equipment has been covered up by signs.

It's a wonder newspapers ever got done. This is time consuming, and a very involved compared to the way it is done today. We were given a copy of the Epitaph edition of the newspaper that covered the trial of the infamous O.K. Corral shooting. Our host was very informative.

We visited because we got our free copy of the Epitaph, but it was quite educational. The people are very friendly. The displays were quite insteresting, with working models of the printing presses.

We went here and had a really good time! We got to see the old newspapers and articles from years ago showing many interesting stories. The old printing press among other things. It is worth the trip!

The museum was interesting and loved reading the old newspapers. We also purchased several gifts to bring home-fantastic tee shirts at very reasonable prices.

Great museum of antique printing presses and backbone of area historical documents. Docent was very knowledgeable and friendly. Not on our original plan to visit, but glad we made the time to stop.

OK I grew up watching Tombstone Territory on TV, and each episode was taken from the files of the Tombstone Epitaph. Now I have finally visited it. The presses are there, as well as newspapers displaying the history of Tombstone. Not as exciting as a gun fight, but in the long run, far more powerful.
