The Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is reenacted daily inside the O.K. Corral Historic Complex at 11 am, noon, 2 pm, and 3:30 pm. The show lasts about 30 minutes. Tickets can only be purchased at the O.K. Corral in person on the day of the performance. Buy your tickets at least 2-3 hours before the show since we often sell out.
We recommend you tour the O.K. Corral's historic exhibits before the gunfight since displays become crowded after the show.
After the gunfight, take your picture standing next to the gunfighters. You can photograph the gunfight and the O.K. Corral grounds as long as the photos are for your personal use only.

If you want to read about Tombstone before you visit, one of the best books about Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is And Die in the West: The Story of the O.K. Corral Gunfight by Paula Mitchell Marks. Unbiased in its approach, it describes the years from Tombstone's discovery in 1877 until Wyatt Earp's death in 1929.
