We have been to the Bird Cage Theater many times but it seems to be improved every time! When we first went in, a spokeswoman was giving a history presentation in the entry. She told about and pointed to various original bullet holes in the entry. The price has gone up from $6 to $9 for seniors since our last... More

We did the walking tour and the ghost tour at 8:00 in the evening. It was a very interesting historical and real place where entertainment, gambling, drinking and prostitution were regular daily events in Tombstone. The history of the bar and huge mirror that traveled across the country is amazing and how it survived random gunshots by patrons is unbelievable.... More

Well worth the admission although a bit pricey, but still much to see. If they dropped their prices they would make a lot more $$ as most people walked away, but we really enjoyed the experience.

After reading the reviews, I decided to check out this place and I'm glad I did. The place is a great representation of what life was like during the short 9 years the theatre was open in the 1800s. Plenty of historical artifacts are on display as well as the place itself pretty much preserved from the day it closed... More

What a time capsule! Everything is original from a hundred plus years ago. Nothing changed or updated and is as original and authentic as it gets including bullet holes in the walls and bar. If you want to experience the Wild West, it doesn't get any better than this.

This was an enjoyable visit. It is the original saloon/stage/bordello complete with bullet holes in the floor, ceiling, and bar. The guide told about his experiences with ghosts in the building and was quite entertaining. We were allowed to self-tour

The Bird Cage Theater tours were a wonderful experience. We took the daytime historical tour and 8 pm ghost tour. The tour guides were eloquent and knowledgeable. The ghost tour was interesting, but not scary, until they turned all the lights out in the last half-hour. If you paid for an exhilarating fright, you can get more than your money's... More

They really pack a lot into the Bird Cage. It is hard to absorb everything in one visit. I like the personal information on so many of the locals from back in its heydays.
