Excellent, Great tour, interesting facts. THE best place to go. Amazing that when times got tought the owner just boarded it up and left it from 1937-45. Thus it is just like it was in the Earp's and Doc Holliday's way. Phenominal experience

This is one of the most interesting things to see in a Tombstone. Lots of history, a lot of original furniture and pictures of the people you have heard about over time. If you’re going to Tombstone, The Bird Cage is well worth visiting.

If you only have time for one exhibit while in Tombstone, the Birdcage Theatre is the one you need to see. You can spend hours here viewing the long-time history of Tombstone. Nothing has been renovated and you can see actual bullet holes in the...More

Very interesting place and loved listening to the history behind the place. We enjoyed the fact that we were able to walk round and explore at our own leisure. Well worth a visit.

Very cool place. All original furnishings. Nice displays and lots of history. Could use a good dusting, the mannequins are covered in a layer of Tombstone grit! Very interesting museum!

Thought the opening history was interesting but the charge to see the rest of the theatre was a little to much. Saw some bullet holes and paintings which was cool. Definitely a stop.

Seems a little cheesy and seems slightly expensive at $12... We weren't sure whether to do this or not and I'm glad we decided to go for it. They have an old gaming table where Doc Holliday played faro and tons of original memorabilia from...More

Totally over rated over priced tourist trap for a short look at a few historic objects. In my opinion it would be worthwhile at a $3.00 price point, but not what they are currently gouging tourists for. Much better value to go down to Bisbee...More

The tour is about an hour and 1/2 by the time you pay for your tickets and if you get a really good tour guide at 8pm. You will be on your feet that whole time keep in mind.
