This is a must see to believe that the rose bush still blooms after all those years. It was awesome.

Our motel staff advised us to see this rose tree and it is amazing! It's huge!!! The biggest rose tree in the world and the oldest!

We timed this trip just right. It was peak time for the millions of tiny roses to be in bloom. The fragrance was fantastic. It's pretty jaw dropping to see a 130 year old rose bush span over 8,000 square feet. It's a must see!

Told the best time to see the rose tree in bloom is in early April. End of April its still beautiful though lost most of its buds

The bush is amazingly large , the rooms have some displays which appear to have been unchanged in years. The lady working the gift shop/entrance was more interested in a conversation with a local than the visitor.

The Rose Tree Museum is small, but seeing the tree was pretty amazing. The smell alone is overpowering. It also had some very interesting items from around Tombstone. It would not be a great place for little kids. It is more for people who like...More

As told to us on our visit. The young Mary missed her home so her parents sent her the rose tree as a comfort.
