Period typesetting and printing press display

Nice collection of period typesetting equipment and presses, such as was used to print the Tombstone Epitaph.

Soon newspapers will be totally extinct. Keeping the history alive allows us to see where news used to come from. Not very big but good history point.

Received a copy of Newspaper after OK Corral fight. It was an in depth look at the local politics (those supporting the Earps versus those 4 the sheriff, Clantons, etc.) of the times. Exhibit might have been more interesting to someone with a "Gutenberg printing press" (😉) knowledge.

You get a FREE Newspaper replica of the day of the Gun Fight from that era with your ticket to the Gun fight at the OK Corral but this museum is a little gem too.

Great if you're into history. Self-guided. It would be boring for children and teens. It's a one room museum which can easily be toured in a short period of time.

Great museum. Loved the history of how the Epitaph came about and the life of Clum. Loved reading the old newspaper articles and seeing the old printing presses. Nice because it is free to the public.

This is a very neat location to visit. This is where the newspapers were written, edited, and published. They have the equipment they would have used to do so and they even have pictures of the individuals that were responsible for running the paper. This is a really neat place to visit.

We toured the Epitaph on a recent first time visit to Tombstone. I thought this was a very well preserved and presented look back into history. Fascinating, really.

When we buy tickets for the OK Coral, we get tickets for an Epitaph newspaper. Usually when we go to the Epitaph, we tour the museum that is in the building but this time, we just picked up our copies of the current paper and the 1880's copy. You just can't make this Tombstone tourist history attraction without getting all... More

But we stopped by to pick up our two free newspapers of the events at the OK corral. Quite a few relics from the past, including old printing presses, printing plates, and relics from our history. Pretty small place to stop by, but it's worth swinging in and checking out what things used to be like
