Rose Tree Museum and Books

The Rose Tree Museum and Books offers a great chance to step away from the typical tourist attractions and focus more on history and literature. Tombstone has a rich history and if you are visiting you are going to want to check out all of the museums that you can. It is famous mostly for being a residence that was later turned into a museum. It is a great way to get a look at the lifestyle from the perspective of someone’s living area. It is also home to the world’s largest rose bush.

Brief History of the Rose Tree Museum and Books
The largest rose bush in the world, also known as the “Lady Banksia” rose, was planted in 1886. It covers an area that is just over 9,000 square feet. This museum is home to many of the relics that you would see in a home during the time period. It is a great way to get a feel for the time period and see just how people were living. You always hear about the shootings and the other famous places on Allen Street that involve violence, but what about the residences.

Wouldn’t it be cool to see how someone made their home more than a hundred years ago? If you really want to get an authentic look at the past and get a feel for what was going through the minds of Tombstone inhabitants during the 1880s, this is the easiest way to do it. Keep in mind though that this museum is closed during Thanksgiving and Christmas Days.
