$10 each to walk through some dusty rooms with not much of any interest in them. And the staff took our $20 but gave us no receipt, ticket or anything. (Wonder if the IRS knows about this practice.) Spend $5 each to visit the excellent Court House Museum instead. (Parking included.) And the ($10 pp) Gun Fight at the OK... More

While in Tombstone we took the ghost tour of the Birdcage Theater. The guide seemed very knowledgeable of the history of the old theater. It was a very nice tour.

A historical and interesting place to see history of Tombstone from the past. A museum and old building that holds onto the past and lets one walk into the old theater and gambling area of the old west.

Visiting The Bird Cage was the most intriguing building to visit. There is still a bullet hole on The Bird Cage bar, everything was left just as it was a hundred or so years ago, the smell is there and it felt like the residue of tough people who once lived there still lingered. The bird cages gave me chills.... More

Try to go in the early morning when you actually see what is around you. I still say something/someone in the Birdcage drained my phone battery to nothing while I was there. It was strange!

While the lobby was pretty cool it was pricey and didn't seem too appropriate for children. We passed on the tour but would have done it if we didn't have the kids with us.

From the point of history alone this is worth visit. Wild interior complete with decorated rooms for the ladies ( ? ) and bullet marks around.

This is a must if you are in Tombstone. Cost was $10 a person but glad we paid. Very neat to see this original building with all the artifacts. Loved seeing all the bullet holes in the ceiling and walls. Lots and lots of history in this building.
