We stopped here on our drive from Sedona to Grand Canyon, coupling it with a stop at Sunset Crater. We visited midday at the end of May, so needless to say hot. We only visited the main Wupatki ruin itself since we were on a...More

The ruins are amazing and the museum is well done. The narrative was excellent and they had special things directed at kids too!

The monument is off the main road about a mile but worth the visit. The monument is built on a huge rock and the construction is something to see. You can walk in the pueblo and see the actual rooms as they were.

Good preservation of a large pueblo community. Lots of information on the way the people lived, as well as information on how excavations are done or not done. Good little hike with some ups and downs of the trail.

Wupatki will not wow you if you've been to the likes of Mesa Verde, Chaco, Palatki, and Honanki. It's a small modest ruin easily combinable in a day trip with nearby Sunset Crater. With regard to the actual Wupatki pueblo, the park service did a...More
