Welcome to the Tombstone Courthouse State Historic Park. Built in 1882 in the shape of a Greek cross, this two-story Victorian structure once housed the offices of the Sheriff, Recorder, Treasurer, Board of Supervisors, Jail, and Courtrooms of Cochise County. Today this 12,000 sq.Ft. Courthouse is a museum filled with the glitter and guns of those who tamed the territory.

The park includes a museum, exhibits, a gift shop, restrooms and shaded picnic areas.

Our Gift Shop features a wide variety of books, postcards, t-shirts, collective coins, badges, coffee mugs, some handcrafted items and other souvenirs.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and Cash. Museum is open daily from 9:00am- 5:00pm. Gift shop closes at 4:45pm. Stop in for an interesting tour and/or the perfect gift!

We went to the old courthouse building. Beautiful spiral staircase, information everywhere on this public building, preserved courtroom, and relics from the area were really interesting. The old gallows in the back area of courthouse was chilling! Definitely worth the $5 donation. Front desk clerk very informative.

Building was closed when we went by, but the building was exceptional and in original condition. I wish we would have been able to go in to check out the inside of the building. Recommend if you get a chance.

We started at the court house and this was so good. Lots of history and photos . It was a rough spot for sure in the 1800s . It was interesting to see photos of the real Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday.

Good value for the entrance fee. Nice photos of local residents and historical figures. We learned about about silver mining and our kids enjoyed the hands on experiences of opening a safe and the small outdoor cell! Fun for kids.

Though not portrayed as 1888, it still gives a nice turn of the last century historic feel. The displays were quite interesting as well.

Amazing collection of artifacts, photos, reconstruction of period rooms, . . . all of which provide a wonderful overview of the history of Tombstone, its settlement, development, and major events. I'm not usually a big history buff, but the information contained in the Courthouse (a state park w/$ 5.00 admission per adult) was so well presented that it kept me... More

Even if you hate visiting museums, this is a "must see" place when you visit Tombstone. It provides a level of authenticity to all the touristy aspects of the history of the town.
