Welcome to the Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Greek cross, this two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the Sheriff, Recorder, Treasurer, Board of Supervisors, Jail, and Courtrooms of Cochise County. Today this 12,000 sq.Ft. Courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory. The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms and shaded picnic areas. Our Gift Shop features a wide variety of books, postcards, t-shirts, collective coins, badges, coffee mugs, some handcrafted items and other souvenirs. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Cash. Museum is open daily from 9:00am- 5:00pm. Gift shop closes at 4:45pm. Stop in for an interesting tour and/or the perfect gift!

A little part of history

Awesome little museum to go through. Lots of history from the 1800's. It is worth taking the time to go through. The staff is very friendly.

I did not like that you had to pay to enter, so I just walked around the exterior, I hate to pay to look at the inside of a building, and I refuse to do so..

This was probably our fourth time visiting Tombstone, Arizona, and once again feeling relaxed and satisfied during our visit. I love this small little town and probably will visit many more times in the future. We have brought our son and dogs in the RV, then our other son and girlfriend during Helldorado Days, and now just the two of... More

Interesting, self guided tour. The winding staircase is beautiful! If you're going to do the Tombstone thing, then this is worth the short walk from the O.K. Corral.

Just the right mix of narrative, photos, artifacts, video, atmosphere, history and context. We saw this first, an it put everything else we did and saw in Tombstone into an excellent context. And it made us realize just how shoddy and pointless the Birdcage is.

There is a lot of History here and it gives you a very good insight into what life was like back then. There is more to Tombstone than just gunfighting.

Wonderful little Museum with lots of artifacts & history of the area from the 1800s. The place is well kept & the staff is very friendly. Only downside is if you are disabled there is no Elevator to the 2nd floor.. only Stairs. Has a small fee of $5 which we thought well worth it

I didn't really get to tour the city hall, it closes at 5:00PM we walked in at 4:30 PM and the ladies looked at us like oh, no! We asked how late Boothill stayed open to. They thought it stayed opened until 6 PM, and felt there wasn't enough time to go through it all at the courthouse, so we... More
