It was nice to visit The Tombstone Epitaph during our visit to the town. They give you a recreation of the paper documenting the gunfight at the OK Corral and you can check out some of the old printing presses.

This is small. Children will probably not care much for it. Small museum style with a gift shop. Papers you get/buy are pretty nice.

Not much to see but it is by donation so worth seeing. It's super quick and self guided so no pressure to 'get your money's worth'

The Tombstone Epitaph is the local newspaper that served Tombstone in its heyday. The original building includes the front office area and the still somewhat operational presses where the paper was actually printed. There is also a very nice, chatty young hostess in period costume...More

This is a free attraction . You can see many original photos from the past. They have the old equipment. The gift shop is the least expensive place in town for t-shirts.
