Awesome place to see while in Tombstone AZ. Such a interesting place we really enjoyed learning about what happened there in the 1880's. I think some of them are still haunting it. Not scary just great! If your a Wyatt Earp fan you must see.

When visiting Tombstone, the Bird Cage Theatre is a must. It was great to hear about the colorful history of the place, It is history close up. I spent more then 1 hour in the Bird Cage Theatre, not a minute to long.

If you want to see a great piece of old west history, go to the Bird Cage. It has many original artifacts in side and much left just as it was from the 1800's. About the only true place left mostly untouched. Listen to some of the history before entering farther inside. Also they do ghost tours at night. It... More

Definitely worth a visit inside, to see how the theatre would have looked back in the day, complete with artefacts and historical info.

It was fun learning all of the facts about this building with so much interesting history attached to it. We toured and heard the history of this establishment for about an hour. Then for the last 30 minutes of the night-time tour, it was lights out and a time to visit with whomever might still be hanging around. We had... More

The Bird Cage Theatre was much smaller than I expected but the inside packed a punch. As others have said, you walk in to a place where it seems time just stopped. There is a ton of historical stuff in there to see (some of it unrelated to the theatre itself) but the highlights for me were seeing the stage... More

This place has just stopped in time. Dusty and dated but just as it should be as it really hasn't been touched since it was opened up. Our guide was not great, missed out information and a bit flustered (perhaps she was new?). But overall it was worth a visit.
