By far my favorite museum! I wish the rose tree had been in bloom but even though it was not, it was still very impressive! Wonderful exhibits, so much to see!

This is the largest rose tree in the world. Truly amazing, particularly when it is in bloom. The museum has some great historical items. The family came to Tombstone in 1879 in a covered wagon.
