We almost didn't go to Tombstone since a lot of people were saying it was just too touristy! But it was a great spot! If you could look beyond the tourist and think about how it was back in the 1880's...it was just like time stood still! And going into the Bird Cage Theatre was just that!! Very cool to... More

I really enjoyed the walk back in time visiting the Bird Cage Theatre. Many artifacts have been left in the same place as when Doc Holliday ran the Faro table there. If you have young children, you may want to consider a discussion of "Ladies of the Night" prior to your visit. After all, that's who were in the "bird... More

Excellent, if you are into ghost hunting or history this is the place. We were very lucky on our tour and did capture some interesting mist during the tour on our cameras even though we did not see the mist when we were going through. Highly recommended.

Kind of spooky, but really cool inside. A different perceptive then you see in the westerns. If you can go at night there is a haunted tour. I'm sure that would be great.

It's a wonderful little museum, it really gives an insight to the Wild West and the "shady side of the street" ! From seeing the rooms that were used to also seeing the licences the working girls had to have then , the little stories of each girl and the various love triangles , it wonderful and enthralling! The bullet... More

The tour was alright. Guide provided some history and background of the building but not the best tour guide we had on our vacation last week. Tour ended with 30 minutes in the dark watching the "ghost monitors" to see if the spirits were visiting our group. It was a bit hokey, but I'm not an experienced "ghost chaser."

We did the 8pm adult over 18yr tour for $20/pp. The guide whose name I unfortunately don't recall was awesome! She loves her job and her enthusiasm and love of the Bird Cage shows. Take the tour! It is worth the extra money to have the guide explain the building history, share ghost stories, point out bullet holes and tell... More

Paid to go in and see the museum and history of everything. So much to see and so much history. Bullet holes in places and all the pieces they have dating to the 1800s is so cool to see.

If you are a ghost hunter, the night tour might be just for you. We had a tour of the old building, very interesting. It is original to the town so filled with old old items. Then came the lights out time when those who had worked there in the wild days of Tombstone were invited to make an appearance.... More

We took the ghost tour at the Bird Cage Theatre while on our honeymoon. Jennifer (our guide) provided an unforgettable experience and a ton of history and other information about the early days of Tombstone. It was an entertaining and fun experience! We come to Tombstone often but had never taken this tour. Highly recommended!
