Today this 12,000 sq.Ft. Courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory.

Tombstone Courthouse State Park is filled with interesting information about the town and its people. It is a pleasant change from the tourist-oriented town itself and completes the picture of life in the wild west.

This museum is brimming with information about Tombstone and the Gunfight t the O.K. Corral. There are a lot of old photos, plus an interesting series of minute by minute prints of the gunfight, which give you more insight into the fight. If you like learning history, not myth, stop here. See artifacts of the Earps and learn more about life in the old west.

This was ok but not all that interesting, The best thing I liked was being able to go out to the courtyard and see the gallows of where the guys was hung.

We toured the Famous Tombstone Courthouse on a Sunday afternoon in November 2013.
The Greeter was inviting and told us about the tour and pointed us on our way. The Courthouse stories are interesting and give you a look into the time period and some of its Famous citizens. The Gallows in the courtyard were neat to see and take a picture in front of. The courtroom itself on the second floor offers a video about another not so famous Gunfight and is an interesting tidbit to watch if you have the time. Overall we enjoyed the visit.

This is a must see. A very beautiful, old building with a lot of history .We have been here before and enjoy it ever time . It gives you a idea of what it was like 100 + yrs ago. Tombstone isn't just about one gunfight .
