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.

The Bird Cage is a must see if you go to Tombstone. They have tours during the day and Ghost tours at night. It makes you feel you are there seeing the bullet holes in the ceiling, stage, card table. The gift shop in the basement has the most unique collectibles. This is a must for all. Kids will enjoy... More

There's not much to see here, but it is a building original to the heyday of Tombstone, and the bullet holes scattered throughout the lobby are interesting to see. A guy gives a verbal history of the space that only takes a few minutes.

This place had lots of local artifacts, rather dusty. The cost of $10 per person is too high (there are discounts for senior or student).
