A nicely restored court room, a gallows, and various exhibits make this worth the stop. It is good to see smelting and assaying equipment to understand rock to shiny stuff. Very reasonably priced.

The Courthouse gives you a real picture of what the old southwest was like during the hight of the mining boom. There is information about the miners, cowboys, town people, and other pioneers. Original furniture, fixtures, and equipment. Plus stories about some very interesting people. Gift shop and restrooms on site. The courthouse is a two story building.

Nice piece of history, well preserved, and a bargain at $5.00. The courtroom was my favorite part of the self guided museum tour.

A bargain at $5.00, worth the price of admission. Slightly different than I expected but wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed this visit to a courtroom! ;)

Not a lot to see, but well maintained. Gallows were a joke, but the courtroom itself was neat. Only $5, so worth it to me

The exhibits are varied and interesting, but require reading to get the full story. (I wouldn't recommend this for young children. Perhaps middle schoolers who have an interest in history and older.) The exhibits include the Shootout at the OK Corral, Doc Holliday, Geronimo, and Tombstone life in the 1880s. There was a video in the old courtroom describing a... More
