“Great History”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Fantastic self guided tour of the history of Tombstone. Much is set in the period and a great deal of history can be learned here. All in all it was a great visit and the price of admission was well worth it.

“The real deal. You could almost feel the ghosts of Tombstone past.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lots of artifacts from Tombstone's legendary past. We spent a couple of hours looking at things. Good collection of firearms and old pictures. There is nothing to dislike here.

“Interesting Exhibit”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Got there late so we were charged half price. The exhibits were very interesting and had very good documentation adjacent to the exhibits detailing the history of each. Not crowded and you can easily spend an hour or more perusing each room. Great eye opener to the history of the area.

“Start your tour of Tombstone at the Courthouse”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

A minimal entry fee provides you with a great orientation of Tombstone. You'll explore the history of the area, get to know some of the prominent figures of the frontier town and of course, learn about the gunfight at OK Corral. You'll be well prepared as you wander about the streets and imagine what it was like in its heyday.
