I did not actually go inside the theater, but snooped around the vestibule. Quite a few things to look at, even in there. So much history, so little time!

This place makes you think you have been mysteriously taken back to its heyday! From the original ornate bar down to the original flooring, it is a treasure! We were allowed to tour two floors of this establishment for a small fee, and at our...More

This place immerses you into the 1880s mining town. The beautiful, historic structure is well maintained. They play up the ghost thing a little much, however it adds to the charm. Skip the gift shop though, quite overpriced!

My husband and I visited Tombstone and, of all of the fun little stops on Allen street, the Bird Cage Theater is a must see! The history presented to us prior to the tour was just as great as the tour.

The Birdcage Theater doesn't look like much from the outside, but the inside is amazing. We paid $20 per person to do an evening ghost tour and it was worth every cent. Just keep in mind that in order for a tour to happen, there...More

We had entered in during our trip to see the OK Corral. The Theatre is one of the few building to be saved from the fire, so very original- even the bullet holes are still there. Architecture is amazing, history and story about the building...More

The Birdcage has been in the same family for over 80 years and they have maintained it nicely. Lots of old relics and period pieces. No way you can see everything in one trip so photos are definitely a plus. Lots of Old West history...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.
