Tombstone as a whole is fun but cheesy, and most of what we saw was not really worth the price of admission. The exception, and highlight of our visit, was exploring the historic (and supposedly haunted) Birdcage Theater. Very neat and worth the price!

There are some interesting artifacts here, but it's not worth the admission price. Take a walking tour of the town instead. You will learn about the Birdcage and other places that way and get more bang for your buck!

This is history. Bullet holes in the ceiling. The Faro table where Doc and Ringo had their famous exchange. Easily the best place to learn and see actual history from "the town too tough to die." Worth the ticket price. Make sure you have time...More

It's worth the $10.00 to go through the theatre. They give you a bit of history when you go in but it's neat to see behind the walls. They offer a ghost tour also which we weren't able to stay for but heard other people...More

Nice intro with very informative info. Lots of neat history and more. Would have liked to see more. $10 for adults to go see the gambling area and other areas of interest.

Did the self guided tour. Very interesting. Looking at the room and thinking about the movie, it was so interesting.

The place was very cool! We did the ghost tour which was really great. The lady that did our tour was short and snippy at first but then got much nicer as the tour went on. Overall pretty good.

$10.00 per person. They have a ghost tour at night, but didn't do that.
