What a historical place! I scheduled this place up just like many others do, due to wanting to maybe see a ghost. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. But, wait, just wait! When the lady who gives the tour is dressed up in costume for that time, lets you in. You forget about the ghosts and begin to see a historical building... More

An incredible story of a historic location discovered and then kept as it was when the silver-rush ended at the end of the 19th century. Loved walking through here and looking at the artifacts on display in the (paid) self-guided tour. I'm the type of person to read everything so took about 90 mins for a good look around. I... More

Visiting from Australia & being a paranormal investigator, I had pressured my husband into driving down to Tombstone so I could do the ghost tour. I was really looking forward to it & had phoned and paid by credit card 2 weeks prior while I was over in the states. I did this because it was a Sat night and... More

We had such a great time at the birdcage ghost tour yesterday - such an interesting place - we just loved all the history in this building and the artifacts were just great to see. All the information about this place was spot on interesting and although the ghost tour was not very active as far as ghosts were concerned... More

This is to me the highlight of my trip to Tombstone. It is an actual time capsule. They closed the doors when the mine flooded and Tombstone seemed to die. And then 60 years later reopened the theater, and they have kept it just the way they found it. You will see the very things Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp... More

Sad to see all these artifacts is such poor shape. An overpriced and poorly tended museum. The building is interesting, but the proprietors seem more concerned with selling Tombstone tourist junk than preserving some unique western history.

The insight of the hard and fast life of the times was for sure, eye opening. So many items of the bygone era are there.

You must make this place No.1 on your visit to Tombstone list. The history here is litteraly all around you. Walk through this amazing theatre to witness what life was like for these wild west days. It was a hard life but when this place was open it was packed every night and boy, did they have fun...just checkout all... More
