We live locally and periodically bring house guests to this most interesting archaeological site. We are never disappointed. The staff and docents are personable and very knowledgeable. Every time we visit we learn something new. Recently the site has started to research and dig again....More

This is a very fun place to visit, especially with kids. It is informative and has hands on displays.

Came onto the site via a river float adventure. There are limited artifacts to view. Two vendors were set up with wares. Some ancient ruins were located on site that portrayed a culture in the area.

In the crowded field of ancestral Puebloan sites, the Coronado Historic Site offers little in terms of spectacular structures, but it is a hidden gem. This isn't Chaco, or Aztec, or even Salmon. The visible adobe-work is marginal and often reconstructed. What it--and no other...More

Easy to accèss off us 550 in Bernalillo, but entrance a bit obscured and splits to dirt road. Look for small sign. Parking lot not big - issue for trailers, motor homes. Ruins very well preserved and good showcase for those to never see a...More

This village bustled from 1300s through the 1500s, and then Coronado came visiting. The restored kiva gives you good perspective. Guided tours are helpful. The original kiva art is now in the visitor's center, easy to admire. The grounds help explain the culture.

To really see the site, allow a couple of hours at least. The guides are public employees and you need neither hire nor tip them. The guide we had was an archeology grad student who obviously loved what he was doing. The... More
