Great to see the ruins and the museum is very nice to walk through, all exhibits under glass but as you walk on the one side you look out over the Canyon from large glass windows: Fabulous, Amazing views!!!

This is a museum at Desert View. I saw it when heading to Watchtower. I decided to stop because I tend to like museums. This was informative and well kept.

This museum was a few miles down Route 64 from the South Rim and pay by donation. The museum is small and well maintained with beautiful examples of Native pottery, clothing and other artifacts from specific tribes. I spent about 1/2 hour inside then walked the ruins which are very close. The ruins had signs with diagrams that explained what each site was and it did require imagination to see what had been there. I very much appreciate that these have been preserved.

I didn't get to go into the museum b/c I was there before it opened. The loop to look at the ruins is well maintained with good signage. It is worth the stop to see the ruins

This is the location to see artifacts and learn about the original inhabitants of the area. Excellent displays, great information to be learned and questions answered.

This was their summer home, much cooler than down in the canyon.
It really gives you some ideas how little we have changed.

Carve out 30 minutes to stop at the Tusayan Ruins and Museum while at GCNP. The tiny museum packs a lot of information and the super short path to the ruins provides a concise view and story about some of the inhabitants. Makes sure to question the rangers - they're a wealth of information!

If you’re driving into the South Rim from the east, I HIGHLY recommend a quick pit stop to this museum. It’s pretty small, but has interesting exhibits on the ancestral natives who occupied the area long ago. The ruins make for a peaceful and reflective journey. In all, I’d allow about 20-30 minutes to see everything.

There are remaining of the buildings where the natives lived. It is a nice place to go. The museum is small and easy to walk. No charge or fee.

This location gives one a feel for what the Indians had to deal with 800 years ago. The site is mostly undisturbed. I though it was interesting.
