So, we were staying on the west side of Tucson for a brief stay and my husband really wanted to go to Tombstone to check it out. I didn't think it was in our young boys' best interest to be in the car for 3 hours (or mine) when we had a great pool at our hotel! I settled for... More

I had no idea this would be as interesting as it turned out to be. We spent about 4 hours there and went into most of the buildings, rode the train, saw one show (The Hanged Man), and took the docent led walking tour, a must to get the story of this place. What a history, dating back to 1939.... More

My rating would be 3.5 if you could give half-points. The kids enjoyed it, particularly the mini train, the cars and the carousel. The performances were pretty good fun. The food is TERRIBLE, particularly at the pizza place. The BBQ place was at least half-decent. Also expensive for what it is. In general, this place is VERY expensive for what... More

We went for a business conference- had an event at Old Tucson. The stunt show was thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable! The facility is authentic with a lot of variety. Good food. Great scenery on the drive there.

Many shops and artisans to see and purchase. Loved the various artworks and honey and glassworks. The jewelry is by the Navajo nation and other various artists. Spent hours just perusing the various shops and articles of the artists from clothing to jewelry to pottery. Healthy foods and childrens clothing. So much eye candy, we want to go back again...

Old Tucson is a great place to see a part of Tucson history. Many of the old Western movies and TV series were filmed at this very location. I've been here a few times and the complaints that I would have about it are #1, the prices and #2 the dust. Price for admission was $18.95 for adults and I... More

Skip it. I was excited when I arrived, but was quickly disappointed. Every building seems to be a gift shop or western-themed food court. One building (near front) has "historical" film "artifacts" (nothing of interest or value) thrown in to count it as a film set. Maybe it was different prior to the fire, but nothing about this place seems... More

Way to expensive. They wanted $20 a person just to tour a movie studio. We did not go in and found it too expensive.

Thanks for your review. The admission price includes stunt shows, entertainment including can-can shows, musical revues and the popular hanged man enactment; tours with historians; train rides; carousel rides; antique car rides; the Iron Door Haunted Mine and more. One of the most common things first-time visitors say is that they intended to stay only an hour or so but... More

We had so much fun here. If you love old westerns this is the place for you. A few different places to eat in park, some great shows. The stunt show was by far the best part of the day. The three young men who were doing the show were hilarious. Where comfortable clothes( you will get dirty and dusty)... More

Thanks for your review! We're so glad you enjoyed your experience at Old Tucson. There is a charge for a couple of things, such as panning for gold (for kids) and the shooting gallery, but we strive to make the entry as inclusive as possible. More

Thank you for your review! It's important for us to keep alive the interest in those old Westerns that were the reason Old Tucson was built in the first place! Glad you enjoyed your visit. More
