Very informative and interesting park. Definitely watch the short video before going through the ruins. It was very hot the day we visited, or we would have stayed longer. I'm always amazed by the Pueblo ruins. Nice gift shop and visitor center.

UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. Ancestral pueblo structures built in the late 1000's to 1200's. Fee eliminated recently. The visitor center has a 15-movie. This one is quite good. There is an interpretive center in the VC that takes 10-40 minutes. There is a...More
