Step back in time to the Old West... The Bird Cage Theatre is an experience you will never forget. Preserved since 1881. Nationally known historic Old West landmark. Site of 16 gunfights, 26 killings, refrain of "Bird in a Gilded Cage" song. Open to the public year-round, daily, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. in Tombstone, Arizona. The place has a reputation of being Haunted. Who knows, those poor souls that were murdered inside, may be ghosts still playing poker with a lady on their laps.

Lots of History with lots of Items

Loved seeing all the items from the time period and hearing about the history of the theater. It was fascinating to see how the theater was used and the amount of space the theater took up.

Lots of history here!

Neat place, overpriced...but lots of interesting artifacts...nooks and crannies....wish there would have been s guided tour or some verbal history provided. Spent a good 45 minutes....

Did the tour on a whim

We are not Much for Museums, but walking through this place was Actually pretty cool. Certainly with the capacity limitations... we had the entire saloon to ourselves and could take our time reading...
