Loved seeing the historic artifacts and learning about the history back then. My teens went back later for the ghost tour and really had a great time!

But the self guided tour and visible bullet holes worth it. It really took one back to the 1890’s, as everything was as it was all those years ago.

Must see as the theatre has been left just as it was back in 1880’s and the bullet holes are stilll in the walls .......some may be from Curly Bill or Ringo and a fascinating tour.

Really neat piece of history to walk through. Would do it again. If you pay to go in anywhere in tombstone, make it be this.

An original building, rich in history. The staff are quite entertaining too. It is really fun to visualize the action which took place in this building a long long time ago. This is one of those items on the Tombstone bucket list. Don't miss is.

The tour is about an hour and 1/2 by the time you pay for your tickets and if you get a really good tour guide at 8pm. You will be on your feet that whole time keep in mind.

Children are allowed on the early tour but not the late tour which is for adults only. I personally would not take my 2 year old on a tour of the Bird Cage as it is dusty inside and I personally don't think a 2 year old is... More
