We stopped by here just before closing so it was practically empty. it is a self guided tour. The place is definitely spooky. It is like going into an old abandoned building, everything in disrepair, but that adds to the charm. The box seats where people watched the performances are still intact. Downstairs are intact rooms where prostitutes took clients... More

Great place filled with lots of history - you can spend as much time in this old historical theatre as you would like on a self guided tour. So much to see and read about - really cool place - we have also taking the night ghost tour in the theatre - didn't experience anything, but it was a really... More

I was thrilled to visit after watching shows about this place. It is old, dark and can be eerie. Lots of artifacts from that era in time. Also, bits of information regarding people that worked at the Bird Cage and the things that were used. No ghosts or spooky things occured on our visit. ( Ghost Hunter fans will understand.)... More

I find myself appreciating the visit to Tombstone more after visit than while I was there. There is a lot to see at the Bird Cage - it is original and there is a lot there. It's not hokey, there are no actors, not made up - I felt like it was honest so to speak. It is a good... More

The birdcage Theatre is situated in the area of Allen street in old Tombstone. It is a fascinating piece of history with a variety of exhibits. On our visit one of the staff was related to the Clantons who u fought at the OK Corall. Going backstage is an experience as it is haunted and you can see where Wyatt... More

The Bird Cage Theater was awesome! As we entered the theater a gentleman started telling us the history of the theater. My children will forever remember this moment as we enter a theater of the 1800s. Totally worth the price to enter the theater.

Really wanted to see this building because of its history and authenticity. Was surprised, like everything else in the carnival that is Tombstone, that a peek behind the curtain would cost my family of 4, $28. Ok, seeing the bird cages where the ladies plied their craft, and seeing the stage with a few bullet holes can be seen is... More

The tour guide talked too much about things not related to The Birdcage Theater. And the way she seemed to stall for time made me think the "Ghost Tour" was going to be staged. HOWEVER, when the walking part of the tour was over and we were seated at the table, I saw some things Before the lights were turned... More

First off, it is $20 a pop to take a ghost tour. It may seem a bit pricey, but I think it was worth it. The building itself is in incredible shape for its age, and you could spend hours looking at everything inside. The downstairs room is kind of strange; they have a zombie mannequin dressed up in cowboy... More

Wow, This place was a real treat. So much history, gun shot holes in the bar and other areas. The card table left turned over from when it closed. You aren't allowed to share your pictures Online, sorry!
