This was one of the best places in Tombstone. So much is still original. If you like history, you will like this place. Many items to see and the building itself is so cool.

Historically it is interesting but for $40 (2 adults and 1 kid). It’s expensive. There wasn’t that much to see.

We were really bummed we could not get inside this theater since it was closed due to inclement weather but we were amazed to see a building still standing from the 1800s. Would be worth a visit if they are open.

Absolutely a MUST see in Tombstone. Most amazing place. The air is thick, you are not alone in there for sure. We missed out on the Ghost tour.

Great insight into the the days of Wyatt Earp and the seedy scene of the theatre girls and their goings on. A-must if you really want to know what went on.

The bar is original to the time. Crazy to see all the bullet holes in the building. The poker table’s history and story was fascinating. Seeing the birdcage brothels was just astonishing! Go see this!
