This show will arouse your imagination into a time when the west was wild. Using blank rounds, these actors use real guns from the old west giving you the feel of what it was like when these legendary shootouts took place and the odd reasons they were started.

For a few bucks you get a show, with real guns loaded with blanks and a history lesson. This show was educational as well entertaining. There were three reenactments of real shoot-outs that happened in Tombstone. I recommend you stopping by and taking in a show!

Doc Najarian and his performers put on a top-notch show. Full of Tombstone history and fun. They specialize in showing you 3 lesser known shootouts that happened in 1880's Tombstone. The indoor venue (a saloon) is very immersive.

I've visited Tombstone many times before but this was my first visit to The Gunfight Palace. They sold us on the show when they told us they were the only air conditioned gun fight in town. But the show was definitely worth it! Friendly staff who also happened to be the actors. The show was just over half an hour... More

This was our introduction to Tombstone and it was very well put together. Not too expensive and the people were very friendly.

The gun fighters are really great and full of personality. The gun fights appeared about as real as possible. The tickets also serve as a discount card for some of the local merchants. Very enjoyable

If you're headed to Tombstone to watch the reenactment of the OK Corral gunfight make sure you visit the Gunfight Palace to witness the other brutal shootouts that added to Tombstone's notoriety. It deepens the story of the town and shows how easy death came. "Doc" and his actors are solid, accessible performers.

I've been to Tombstone on many occasions and I have enjoyed it every time. This time, however, the town has become commercial to the point of losing its identity. As we crossed the street, we heard several actors calling us in to watch their reenactment of three gunfights. This isn't a Hollywood movie with $10M actors. These are several men... More

Great series of informational sketches, well performed and each ending, not surprisingly, with someone getting shot. You will love it!
