The courthouse has a lot of historical things that were relevant to the times. There is an interesting section about the Earps with a lot of details that are not usually known. It is worth the time to see the memorabilia of this era in...More

Visiting Tombstone on a day trip as my wife & I were in Tucson for a week this past November, we didn't set out with the specific intention of visiting the Tombstone Courthouse. I mean, I didn't understand that was... a thing to do. But,...More

We stopped here first, to learn some “real” history about Tombstone, before moving on to the more touristy attractions. Employees friendly and knowledgeable, great exhibits. For some reason my kids were obsessed with the barbed wire exhibit...who knew there were so many kinds?! I suggest...More

Great short self guided tour-pretty cheap. Fun to see some of the mining items that were used during the silver boom

It’s nice walked through and reading the history of the town and the courthouse. I would say it last about 30 mins. At one of the exit sign, you can go out and look at the replica of the gallows.

$7 per person to get in the door. Expected to see lots of items but was very disappointed. Not a lot to see in side. A few old things scattered about with no real rhyme or reason. I would recommending to skip this place.

We enjoyed the Courthouse with all its history, and spent a couple of hours here. The docents were friendly. We were able to take pictures here.

So much history on display in this building, in many separate rooms. The courtroom is a real treat, a great exercise in reliving history imaging what had happened through the years in there. The gallows out back, though not original, is exhilarating. This is another...More
