Very eerie. The place looks like it hasnt been changed since the 1870's. I was surprised at what a small space it was in back. There are bullet holes dotted around.

This place made the entire trip worth while. We were super excited to see Tombstone and little did we know its one giant tourist trap. The bird cage theatre made the trip. The history, the bullet holes, the step back into time was amazing.

The birdcage was probably the most information, historical artifact, and entertainment dense part of Tombstone. Super fun and creepy.
