Bird Cage Theatre, Tombstone

4.3
Originally built in 1881 as a theater, saloon, gambling parlor, and brothel, Bird Cage Theatre features original decor, including 120 bullet holes in the walls. Here you can visit rooms that have been untouched for over 100 years, and be in the same bedroom where Wyatt Earp stayed. See the infamous bird cages suspended on the wall just below the ceiling, where ladies of the night entertained their clients. In 1882, The New York Times called it "the wildest, wickedest night spot between Basin Street and the Barbary Coast." Ask the staff for a ghost tour.

  • Knowing the history here, I was super excited to walk around this place! Sadly, I didn't really feel anything or get any exciting pictures. But I do know I will be back for the Haunted Tour in the future! My poor mother watched the Ghost Adventures episode and said she wouldn't have gone in if she'd seen that first!! Ha ha! Love it!!
  • An absolute must-see if you visit Tombstone. Especially the basement where the longest running poker game made history - 8 years, 5 months, 3 days starting in 1881. The self-guided tour is remarkable. Unchanged, untouched.
