The Thai wife and I spent an enjoyable hour exploring the courthouse and historical exhibits within it. It is a wonderfully restored building with really interesting history. The jail beneath and gallows outside add to whole experience. Definitely worth spending at least and hour here.

We got a bettrr sense of og Tombstone's history through the various exhibits in town. However, if you're a history buff, this is well worth the stop.

Informative little museum with gallows out back. This place was full of documents and artifacts that tell the story of the town, and it wasn't overly expensive (unlike many attractions in Tombstone). Good for families.

We were of course, familiar with the OK Corral story, etc, but this tells a lot of the other history of the area. Well laid out and lots of interesting info. There is no air conditioning, so it will be warm, and there are stairs.
