The ghost tour is awesome. Detailed stories of the past and the best part is at the end. You sit on stage in the dark and call out to the spirits. Very awesome experience

The Bird Cage was definitely one of the buildings we most wanted to see in Tombstone. A lot of history and original artifacts. Bullet holes all over the place! The information from the tour was great and fun. The "ghost hunting" part itself was disappointing....More

When did the Bird Cage Theatre open? I am aware that the grand opening was December 26, 1881, Was it open for business prior to the official Grand Opening as is common for many businesses in this day & age?

$10.00 per person. They have a ghost tour at night, but didn't do that.
