The entrance of the theatre was so interesting in itself. The gal gives a brief explaination of the place and able to see history first hand( down to the bullet holes everywhere!). We did not pay the extra fee to go onto the main theatre, but still a must see in Tombstone.

I visited the Bird Cage Theatre on a rainy Sunday morning (1/1/2017). The place was empty and perfect for soaking in all of the history and letting the imagination loose. I love Western history and this place is the best!

I am fascinated by the Bird Cage Theater. I didn't know anything about it before I went but now I am obsessed with learning more about it and the people who were there in that time period. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I liked the fact that it is untouched and left just the way it was in the... More

One one the most profound time warp experiences to be had. Forget Disney crap. See the real thing. Unaltered. Unforgettable. Your great grandfather in action.

The host giving history in the lobby was very knowledgeable and engaging. We did the self-guided tour of the museum. Great artifacts. Was with my ten-year old son and he was engaged as we went through. Loved learning about Tombstone. Small space, but full of history and education.

Went to this Tombstone favorite from the past....Simply amazing! The old stage, basement gambling room preserved like it was in 1880's and museum like relics from the entertainers and all who frequented kept your interest! Worth the visit!

I've visited the Bird Cage twice. It's a short self-guided tour. Are those bullet holes in the roof???

My husband and I were convinced upon our arrival at Bird Cage Theater to take the ghost tour for 20 dollars a piece instead of the self -guided. It didn't really take much convincing for me, as I really enjoy spooky places and knew previously that this is considered to be one if the most haunted buildings In. America. Wow,... More

We toured this due to all the reviews saying it is a must see. It is interesting enough, but a little much at $10. The history is what makes it interesting but there is history throughout the town so if you are on a budget you can skip this and not miss much.

I think the best part is the outside and the lobby. Not much to see inside. Lots of history to this place but not really kept up.
