What I discovered on this trip to Tombstone is that the Birdcage is still Owned by the original family. It's full of history and bullet holes

There was too much to see in just one visit. We did the daytime self tour, which allowed for more time to view the amazing artifacts. We will have to check out the night time tour soon.

Tombstone itself to me is a tourist trap. The only sights I would recommend while here would be the Birdcage Theatre, Courthouse Museum, and Boot Hill. Many interesting things in the Birdcage Theatre. Worth the entrance fee to see all the neat wild west era artifacts.

The Bird Cage Theater is "alive" with the past. The artifacts and memorabilia are fascinating and the building itself takes you back to the days when the OK Corral was up and running and Doc Holiday, Wyatt and the gang roamed the streets. I have been to The Bird Cage everytime I go to Tombstone and did a little ghost... More

The Bird Cage is an American Icon. The history that the museum tells will leave you in awe. It is unguided so I would recommend bringing a local along with you to hear the entire story.

This place is a must see when coming to Tombstone Az. I love the stories behind it and all of the authentic historical items throughout the tour. I felt like a little kid, so excited to see everything there was before and after the tour. The price was great for what we were able to see. So much history to... More

I really love this place and you can feel the history. This is my third visit and a must whilst in Tombstone. They do ghost tours if you are interested.

The Bird Cage Theatre is one of the original buildings from the 1800's. You can walk in the front of the building but be sure to pay the $10 to see the rest of the building. This place is extremely interesting and very historic. You can even see gun holes in the old bar and the walls. Don't miss this... More
