If you have an interest in historical printing presses this is the place to visit if your in Tombstone. Gentlemen that was there was very knowledgeable about the machinery and was able to answer all our questions with regards to the presses. Also had great old west posters.

This is where you can pick up a reproduction of the 1881 newspaper about the OK Corral. They also have several old printing presses & town history information. It's worth the stop while visiting Tombstone.

We have been to Tombstone dozens of times, but never stopped in here. Today (5/24), we had no excuse as we found a lovely parking spot on this street, and passed this building twice. Looks prominent on the outside, and when we peeked in, we saw that the Museum is quite small, so, most likely a 10-15 minutes visit would be enough.

There is a small Gift Shop to the left when one enters. We began looking at the machinery to the right, and the very pleasant caretaker lady, welcomed us warmly, and invited us to see the rest of the Museum. Today, was such a hot day, however, inside, it is wonderfully cool. Almost surprising that such old buildings can sustain such good air conditioning.

We went into the other room, and even though we have often seen antique printing presses, and all that goes with them, in other Museums, we really enjoyed this short but interesting walk through a great part of Tombstone's history. And, we had judged correctly, as we were there about 15 minutes total. The Museum is free, and it's wonderful that they have preserved this equipment, and are taking good care of it.

The owners told us all about the paper, showed us how the printing machine worked, gave us all kinds of insights. Being in Tombstone, everyone knows everything and talk to you like neighbors not tourists.
