This place is OK. The museum has nothing striking but there's a nice snack wagon and playground nearby.

This is one of the attractions you could miss if you don’t look. We enjoyed the exhibits and movie and the ruins.

This had very interesting exhibits inside with lots of information I didn’t know about before. Outside there was a partially excavated home/village site that built on the inside information. Also a very nice gift shop.

Inexpensive museum to get you off the zig-zagging road and learn a little about Anasazi Indians. Ruins on site, short short walk out the back door. Very nice educational film.
