the museum is just a one room exhibit of the historical presses and things that Tombstone Epitaph has reported on. It's a very simple exhibit but was really interesting to look at. Plus it was free!

We stopped in here and got our free copy of the paper that they give away. What a neat souvenir it is! This is so cool to watch the business in progress. Its all visible right there.

Cute little museum with copies of old important papers. Isn't very exciting for me or my kid. I would recommend to fans of the press and newspaper history.... but no one else.

We dropped in here for a few minutes because we had tickets to a show soon. We only spent about 15 minutes or so, but you could easily spend an hour or longer. There are several interesting newspaper articles to read, and printing equipment to look at. Several articles and pictures about Geronimo.

This was a good quick stop to see the oldest running newspaper. The old machinery gives one a perspective on the past publishing of newspapers.

The newspaper office is smallish, and doesn't take very long to go through. Make sure you go after you go to the OK Corral, you can get coupons for a free paper with the original article written about the OK Corral gunfight.

A small but nice exhibit of paper printing technology more than 100 years ago. The Tombstone Epitaph was a free attraction and interesting to history lovers.
