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

This theater is full of old antiques and according to the lady taking the entrance fee, has never been restored. It was upgraded to electricity and fire code but somethings look like they have not moved in 50 years. A cool look back in history!

The Birdcage is very interesting from a historical standpoint. It takes quite some time to see everything and take it in. My husband and I have visited several times because you always end up missing something when you visit. The only thing I have to say that is negative is that they no longer permit you to take photos to... More

I could probably spend hours in this unrestored theatre. It is the only structure in Toombstone not to have undergone significant restoration. As you enter you can feel the history of the place. Tons of period displays and info throughout this truly remarkable building.
