This is a recent addition to the tombstone skyline. It is historic inside and out and was worth seeing

The staff at the court house is amazing and friendly. We walked through all 3 floors (downstais if really only a few steps but leads out to the old Gallows). Every inch of the court house included historic information and displays of life back in old Tombstone. This is definitely a tour that visitors should not pass up.

If you like stepping into history, then the courthouse is your place. The corner stone was laid and it was opened in 1882. As an author of several Tombstone history books, I highly recommend this place! Sherry Monahan

It is definitely worth the price and time to spend at the courthouse. It has a nice timeline of the gunfight at the ok corral. I liked all the original items on display.

We arrived about 15 minutes before closing time and the girls were nice enough to still let us tour the court house. A LOT of great Tombstone history and artifacts - a great place to stop!
