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!

If you want to get a feel for the old wild west, this town is a must-visit experience. The structures help re-create what Arizona was like as a Territory.

I had been wanting to go to Tombstone for years, and finally my girlfriend made it happen. This town is so Awesome, and the O.K. Corral gun fight was cool, and had a lot of great history with it before the shoot out. There's a lot of cool shops there, and stage coach rides. I would love to go back!

Be aware that it's not air conditioned, but if you can brave the heat this is a great historical background to Tombstone without all the kitsch you'll find on Allen Street!

This is a must to see place. Very interesting and fun place. Seeing the library itself was imazing and those old time outfits were something else.

Very interesting historical items from the era, not crowded with people, a very fine building example (although the double gallows outside is a bit re created) Worth a visit
