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.

The courthouse is very informative. It isn't air conditioned but the windows were open.I thought it was cool to see the gallows.

The court house has a lot of history about Tombstone and some of the famous residents. Worth a visit if you are in town.

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

It is very unique building that did not burn down in 1881 or 1882 like so many on Allen street did it is only $2. Well worth it if you have the time.

The court house architecture is grand, stunning and a bit unexpected after seeing the Earp homes and historic shops on Allen Street. This elegant brick and stone building towers over nearby architecture. Inside there are interesting exhibits and descriptions of what life was like at the turn of the century. Well worth a visit - check opening hours upon arrival... More

We had a chance to go through the old courthouse in Tombstone while visiting during Wyatt Earp Days. It is a cool old building to go through and is worth going through. It is a great piece of history to tour.
