This is by far and away the best display of firearms anywhere in Tombstone. The rose tree is amazing as well (we bought a clipping), but the glass-encased displays of firearms was really wonderful.

The museum has some period rooms and furniture but the focus is on the rose bush in the courtyard. It is so large that, when trimmed, a couple of truckloads are needed to haul away the trimmings.

The first time I went to Tombstone I skipped the museum and tree viewing...and that was a mistake. This is super cool, and worth the nominal $5 fee.

Only place in town that doesn't seem to have fallen into becoming a Hollywood Tourist trap. Fascinating to see the huge rose bush, but the vintage displays through out the house are worth the visit.

We enjoyed the Rose Tree Museum and had a very informative docent while there. The Rose Tree was very impressive. It would be nice to see in April when blooming.

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