The replica of the old west was interesting and very neat. Interactive actors performing shoot outs and saloon style fun. I would highly recommend. Great gift shops, too!

I had a great time roaming around Old Tucson. The movie memorabilia was just fascinating. The buildings are really authentic, its a family friendly place, very relaxing and spending a full 1/2 day is about the right amount of time. Be sure to enjoy the various shows they put on. Lots of fun, keep your sense of humor, and recognize... More

Thank you for visiting Old Tucson! It sounds like you didn't have time to take in an historic tour, some of our shows or living history presentations, three additional stores, and our vintage carousel and antique cars for the little ones. We hope to see you again in the future! More

"Old Tucson" to walk the streets that your favourite cowboy did in your favourite cowboy show can bring back wonderful memories. I was brought up on "Dusters" and to walk in this town where some of the best films were made can really make you smile. John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, let your imagination fill your day. The town... More

This is kind of like a low-key disneyish place. We loved the real characters acting out their roles in the streets and stunts. It would be fun for children, but we adults enjoyed as well. Don't miss the music presentation in the saloon at the end of the day - it was a highlight.

Expensive. Not entertaining for adults. We attended several lame shows...the weird mine...and then left. I couldn't recommend for any age.

The place is only open Friday thru Sunday. Check their website to find their days of operation! From what we could see from the outside, we were not impressed.
