If you are looking for a beautiful refurbished 1880's wild west theatre, this is NOT your place. What your get with the Bird Cage is a theatre stuck in time. The theatre closed in 1892 and sat until 1934. When the new owners bought it,...More

If you are in Tombstone after dark, talk a walk East along Allen Street and stroll into the Bird Cage Theatre. We took a ghost tour (includes tour of the entire building) with Jennifer as our guide. She gave us a great history lesson and...More

I love this place for several reasons. First, we can all agree the building itself is pretty remarkable. The furnishings, the atmosphere, the tall tales of days gone bye. The Birdcage does have it share of ghost and I have audio and video to show...More

This place isn't just a gift shop, do the tour. They have preserved rooms that the women used back in the day. And so many relics. Everything has explanations and it is very much worth it just to be able to lay eyes on things...More

We spent the extra few dollars to go see the preserved museum in the back -- it's worth seeing, in my opinion.

The Bird Cage Theatre is a piece of drama well worth a visit. It’s a family run thing. I don’t want to say too much about it to spoil the surprises. There is a great atmosphere and energy about the place. We went at 9am...More

Family of four cost us 48 dollars for an unguided tour . The place was cool but not worth that fifty dollars for a 10 min walk though. When we first got their the lady said 34 group price and then it became 48.

The Bird Cage theater is a short walk-through (we didn't do the ghost tour), but it's amazing to think about its history. It's well worth a $12 fee to stand in the same spot as those who visited the theater in the early days of...More

The tour is about an hour and 1/2 by the time you pay for your tickets and if you get a really good tour guide at 8pm. You will be on your feet that whole time keep in mind.
