The Bird Cage Theater, Gift Shop and Museum were fantastic. For a $10 charge you can walk all thru the theater and see items that belonged to Wyatt Earp, Doc Holiday, Wyatt Earps girlfriend Josephine, and even the actual Faro table that Johnny Ringo and Doc Holiday fought over. You will see the old stage, a hearse and morticians kit,... More

This place has some of the most interesting things we saw. The fact that it's advertised as the #1 most haunted building in America (TAPS),epic center of the paranormal(TRAVEL CHANNEL),ground zero for the paranormal(HISTORY CHANNEL), was one of the reasons we had to go.The merman was right there as you walk in. It is one of the two exhibited in... More

The Bird Cage Theater in the only original standing building after the fires in the late eighteen hundreds / early nineteen hundreds. If you are already there do not miss going in and through.

Somehow the town of Tombstone needs to ensure 3 or 4 places are free attractions augmented by retail support. We would not pay for this! The attendant has the 'spiel' down pat and it is boring. Someone needs to generate enthusiasm so we as visitors wish to stay. We did not.

A truly historical gem ! Probably the best attraction in Tombstone. The tour guides were well informed and friendly. Take the nighttime guided tour !

Fun to hear the interesting stories of a by gone era during the heyday of the Wild West. Evidence of gun fights from that time still remain.

While this is a historical building, $10 per person to walk through a few rooms is too much. We were not given any introduction, not was a tour guide present to give background of the rooms. We just walked through and into the gift shop in about 10 minutes. Disappointing.

Really wanted to go into the Bird Cage. Stayed for the informative intro in the lobby, but we left along with everyone else when they said it was $10 per person to go inside. That's a shame, because probably 20 people walked out the door. Most places in town charge $5. They would be better off charging $5 per person,... More
