We have been to the Bird Cage Theater several times. It is fascinating to step back into the past being surrounded by thousands of historical items. It may seem as if the place is uncared for, however I feel it adds to the allure of the past.

We always love the Bird Cage. I took pictures of the hearse inside and I actually caught a picture of a cowboy ghost. I took 2 pics and you could see how he turned his head and looked at me. It was cool!

Went to the Birdcage with my teenage daughter who wanted to go on the tour for the second time. Was told no one under 18 could go on the 8PM tour too many bad reviews for her. Pretty bad when you get turned away for something that you really enjoyed the first time.

We went to the saloon late one evening and at the last minute, decided to take the ghost tour. What we didn't realize was that the last 35 minutes or so would be dedicated to talking to spirits, which I am opposed to. We enjoyed seeing the back parts of the stage area and hearing the history of the place.... More

Out of all of the attractions in Tombstone; this one is a must see. The theater is original inside and has tons of artifacts throughout. It is a self-guided tour so you can take as long as you want to look at everything. Very interesting piece of history!

I am a history buff and couldn't wait to see the history of Tombstone. I was disappointed that the Bird Cage Theater is now a pay museum and has been remodeled so that you can only see the first 15 feet or so inside the door. There is a lot of history in the building and the little bit I... More

This place is a must to see on your list. If you have time I suggest to do the ghost tour at night. We didn't have time for it. We just did the regular tour and it was just cool to see the actual place still in good condition. We'll definitely do the ghost tour on our return visit!

I tried to visit the Bird Cage Theatre the first time I visited 20 years ago, but was not able to. This time, I made a point of visiting it. The place was better than I thought it would be. The historical items inside were amazing to look at. I learned things about the theatre that I had not known... More
