The tour of the theatre was quite good but then we all sat around a table and the lights were switched off. For the next half hour nothing much happened with the hostess speaking to the 'ghosts'. Unsurprisingly none turned up, although one woman (possibly a plant) claimed her chair leg was shaking. Waste of time and money.

My husband and I toured this "museum" on Sept. 15, 2014. It just had a general feeling of neglect. It was very dusty/dirty and looked like someone put this stuff on display years ago, called it a museum and never tended to it afterwards. There was a misspelling on one of the description cards and I noticed this at another... More

I did the ghost tour with my brother and boyfriend. We thought it was going to be lame, but tried it for the heck of it. At first we went though the museum part. The tour guild was friendly and sassy. She was a load of fun. The building is beautiful. At the end of our tour of the place... More

I had seen the birdcage on TV plenty of times and being the paranormal lover that I am, was so excited to go here. It definitely does need to be cleaned as pretty much everyone else has stated on here. But it is really cool to see wallpaper or a painting that was there back in the 1800s. The price... More

This place is a MUST SEE if you're a history buff. The building is original and has not been refurbished. The building is full of bullet holes, original lamps and tons of authentic items from the 1880's. It is well organized with plenty descriptions. Take the haunted ghost tour in this building at night too!

We did 2 tours at the Birdcage. We did a self guided tour during the day that was a lot of fun. Very cool to see all of the antiques and think about all of the history that happened in the building. Then, we signed up for a night time paranormal investigation. This is why we came to Tombstone. I... More

This was pretty interesting. They had a lot of the original furniture. They left all the furniture in the same spot when they shut it down
