Upon entering the main lobby we were given a bit of the history of the Birdcage. From an old painting that was slashed by drunken patrons as they believed the girl came alive to the actual bullet holes in the walls and bar, there was so much to see on this tour. History reigns here and you are free to... More

We started in the main lobby with the sales pitch - which truly didn't do the rest of the place justice. When we first hear the entrance fee, we hesitated and I'm SO glad we went ahead, paid and went inside. The insight into what it was like in the height of the era and the artifacts are second to...

Took a tour of the basement. The relics were still there from the 1880's. To see the bullet holes, the table where doc holliday and johnny Ringo played cards was awesome. And over 140 bullet holes. A piece of our history come alive.

Birdcage Saloon was so interesting and filled with history of people we have heard about in school, TV, movies, etc. you can take pictures and spend all the time you want. You may even learn something new when you see the list of people who preformed there. Don't miss the Birdcage.

Wow, you need to experience this look back into the late 1800's. This building has been kept mostly just like it was 125 years ago and has been preserved. It's the only original full building left in the town as it was way back when. We did do the adult ghost tour, but unfortunately we really didn't see, or hear... More

Excellent views of the way it was back then. The small rooms lining the top, the costumes, horse drawn hearse. Definitely a must see if you;re in Tombstone.

First time in tombstone. My kids where on a mission to see what they had seen on ghost adventures tv show. Nice time. Took some good pictures. We took a tour with kids in the morning and then we did a adults only lockdown tour at night. A little pricey for daytime tour. It's a small building to tour. Night... More

Although it's different from the last time that I was here, they still have great tours. The whole place seems eerily, creepy . I also did the ghost tour at night, and that was extremely entertaining.
