I see a few posts that people felt it was not worth the money but we felt it was well worth it. You get to see two monuments and it was very impressive. To see these buildings that are almost 1000 years old and still...More

A must see in the area. A treasure of Native American history. I went there a few days ago. Check out the visitor center as well.

If you're visiting the Grand Canyon, travel the loop that includes both Wupatki and Sunset Crater National Parks. You'll be glad you did. (Because where else are you going to see black lava fields, right?) The Wupatki Monument takes you back in time, imagining what...More

The ruins are beautiful and mesmerizing as it’s hard to imagine having lived in these pueblos. It is worth the drive and time to walk around, even in the demanding heat. It just gives you more appreciation for our ancestors and the circumstances they lived...More

I've driven past the sign for this place a dozen times, and finally went in. Totally worth it. Take the loop road from the south entrance and visit the Sunset Crater first, and then continue to Wupatki. The visitors' center has great information, including a...More

This is the real thing, true Native American ruins. Once you get to the visitor center, it’s an easy walk in the back where you will see something most people have not had the chance to see. Makes for cool photos too.
