We paid for two senior tickets at $18 each - watched a "reinactment" of a movie scene and then listed to a guide talk about movies which had been filmed there. A total of 30 minutes at the most and we were done. The buildings are very small and shabby - I know "movies are magic" but I found it... More

This is an attraction definitely suited to the early westerns on TV crowd. I certainly had fun and recognizing many backdrops I had seen as a young western enthusiast on television. From high chaparral to bonanza to the outlaw Josie Wales. It's not a cheap thing to go to and eating there is a special way overpriced endeavor. I have... More

This was a spontaneous stop, what a surprise. The shows were great, sets were fun. Shops are on the expensive end but a fun afternoon.

For something different, you can do a family portrait dressed up as saloon gals or cowboys, a memorable experience for everyone. Then, walk around into different shops and view what the old west was like.

Old Tucson is an old western movie set that has been preserved. It is a self guided tour. There are stunt shows, a can-can show, music shows and lots of history. Kids will enjoy the train ride, the carousel and the antique cars. You have a choice of places to eat, too. It's a Great family fun day!

We arrived when the gates opened at 10:00. Our tour guide, Marty, had been working there for 16 years. Not only was he a wealth of knowledge, he has actually been in several of the movies filmed there, and you could tell he enjoyed his job! We had only planned on staying a couple hours, but actually stayed and had... More

A friend was selected to participate in the Shootout at Old Tucson... Not only did this make a lasting memory his antics added to the fun of the event for everyone watching. Thanks for the memories Old Tucson. This is favorite getaway for my friends and family.

Awesome venue. Plan to spend a full day here and take part every activity offered, from the old saloons, gun fight re-enactment, museum and the history of every western movie made here. You'll be amazed how many famous actors helped create legends of the Old West, and how many movies you'll remember. Terrific family activities.
