Saw some original history with this site. Was fun to walk around and see the bullet holes and learn some things about old west.

I love the Birdcage and every time we visit Tombstone we make this a must to visit. We took the haunted tour and we have taken it before but this was a little different with more history added. This place is actually stepping back in...More

I definitely recommend the Bird Cage. It looks untouched as much as possible and unlike many of the buildings, has much of the original furnishings. You get a sense of what it was like in Tombstone back in the day.

Has a lot of old artifacts that provide additional information. The best part was downstairs to glimpse the old rooms. I enjoyed seeing what the theater looked like when it was in use.

Fun to visit, the lady did a great job of history and how it all went down, from the "ladies" to the gun fights. Amazing to hear what really happened in a short version, wish I had longer to hang out.

This was very interesting visit. I believe it was $12 a person, but very interesting self-guided tour. It would be real cool to have a tape tour that you could listen to and direct you through all the items.

I was told that this building is one of the few buildings with the original furnishings. Many of the other buildings in town had sold off their furnishings. When you walk in you will see the original bar and paintings on the walls. A wall...More

The tour is about an hour and 1/2 by the time you pay for your tickets and if you get a really good tour guide at 8pm. You will be on your feet that whole time keep in mind.
