Welcome to the Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Greek cross, this two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the Sheriff, Recorder, Treasurer, Board of Supervisors, Jail, and Courtrooms of Cochise County. Today this 12,000 sq.Ft. Courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory.

The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms and shaded picnic areas.

Our Gift Shop features a wide variety of books, postcards, t-shirts, collective coins, badges, coffee mugs, some handcrafted items and other souvenirs.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Cash. Museum is open daily from 9:00am- 5:00pm. Gift shop closes at 4:45pm. Stop in for an interesting tour and/or the perfect gift!

Several historic items and info but don't expect more. A visit will take you no more than 20-30 minuttes depending of your interests.

Fans of the old west must go here, much of the town has been preserved as a living museum, and much of the back story of the west (rebels from the civil war escaping the reality of defeat, and Irish fleeing the famines), learned that Doc Holliday was tuburcular, and needed the dry weather.

We had a 17 & 19 year old with us that are obsessed with anything to do with the old West. We had to practically drag them out after 3 hours in the museum. We all enjoyed the history displayed, the exhibits are well thought out. If you don't know much about the history of the area this courthouse museum... More

I loved the shop too and despite being the first place we visited I bought quite a few gifts here…… ( and I have to say my family loved them on our return.... More

Very interesting - have hanging posts in courtyard. Impressive building in great condition for its age. Would have liked to have seen the inside of it - but we were pressed for time.

Walking through the door you are immediately submerged into the history of the town. The exhibits are well arranged and spread out over two stories. For the Earp fans there are many pictures and items of interest.

A very historical place to visit. The staircase is amazing. Dont rush your visit as the Courthouse is filled to the brim with history. Dont pass up visiting the gallows and ringing the different bells. Awesome visit!

The court house was a great place to start the history tour of the town of Tombstone. I enjoy the artifacts and the history of the artifacts, and the county. It is a must see when you go to Tombstone.

I took my husband to Tombstone - and the Courthouse State Historic Park was his favorite thing to see. The only thing is it is pretty WARM inside there. But there is so much history and wonderful articles and pictures of the past and more. It's huge and so much to see, be sure and go and take your camera... More
