We enjoyed this. It was cool to walk in the theater. They also had great memorabilia inside. The guy out front that gave us info was cool he showed us dint of the gun shoot holes and gave us a back ground of the theatre.

The really is a look into the "1800's"!!!! It is in pretty rough shape, but it still is very cool to be in the original building were all the old cowboys came and played cards and got shot among other things!! So cool to see the stage, bar and the rooms in the lower level. I would have enjoyed hearing... More

I think $10. is a little steep to visit this place, however with the antiques they have, I didn't feel cheated. The Birdcage is reported to be original from the 1880's and untouched from the fires which have burnt most of the other areas in town. The historical artifacts in the place are amazing. The facility is pretty dirty, however... More

The Birdcage is a must - it gives you an insight into the Western Life - not only of the Girls ( soiled doves) , but also of the cowboys & gamblers. It is almost untouched and the crude ,unpolished displays all add to the charm.

I brought a family of 6 down here for a tour/ghost tour having been familiar with the birdcage theatre for many years and the tour guide was horrible. I should have gotten her name, it may have been Pamela, long back hair. First of all, she didn't explain the history of the building like all the other tour guides. When... More

Our first ghost hunting experience!!! Tour guide was passionate and humorous. Theatre is in good spooky condition. Loved every moment and even caught a ghost on my cell phone camera. I recommend trying the longer tour over the short. Worth the $$$$

It was wonderful to see the original curtain still hanging on the stage. Great preserved photos, equipment and stories of the men and women who walked on that stage.

Neat history and originally still in the place. $10 per person to enter and tour. Over priced to my standard

first of all, there is a $10.00 entry fee to get in. A lot of interesting items but just not well presented for a museum. For instance, there was a bunch of old relics and item that were just sitting on top of a buffet table from that time and era with no explanation or history of items. Pretty much... More
