If you like ruins these are definitely worth a visit. You can walk right into some of the rooms. A short video at the beginning helps you understand what you are looking at. And they don’t even charge an admission fee.

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.
