We walked in to look around and decided to take the tour. Very glad we did! Everything is how is was left back in it’s heyday. Take lots of pictures and you just might get a glimpse of an old soul still lurking around.

Went on the 8:00pm tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour was in-depth and worth the $20.00 fee. The part that was most entertaining was the lights-out portion. Highly recommend this tour if visiting Tombstone.

This is one of the remaining buildings from back in those days. Very realistic, since basically untouched, preserving the mood. Of course there is electricity now, so I was trying to imagine what it must have looked like with gaslights. Lots to see. The visit...More

We really wanted to see the Bird Cage Theatre due to Ghost Adventures. It did not let us down! Great experience. Wish my daughter could've participated in the ghost hunting experience. Great friendly people!

There were many cool things to see here but I think it was more worth $5 a person. You are walking through yourself. There is no show or guide. I did enjoy seeing stuff but someone in costume explaining each area would add a lot...More

very good history, most of the bird cage has been left untouched. The theatre looks like it has been cleaned up since our last visit which I think was a mistake. The poker room is authentic but again, idiots have thrown dollar bills on poker...More

This was a highlight on the trip. Did it for my wife, I thought I'd go along with it. It was pretty cool though. Recommend over other sites in tombstone.

Children are allowed on the early tour but not the late tour which is for adults only. I personally would not take my 2 year old on a tour of the Bird Cage as it is dusty inside and I personally don't think a 2 year old is... More
