This village bustled from 1300s through the 1500s, and then Coronado came visiting. The restored kiva gives you good perspective. Guided tours are helpful. The original kiva art is now in the visitor's center, easy to admire. The grounds help explain the culture.

We have always enjoyed learning about the peoples who inhabited the Americas before the Europeans arrived. This site, overlooking the Rio Grande, transcends the ordinary collection of sites, digs, and artifacts in that it has been so carefully preserved and in cases, recreated, that your...More

The interpretive center was relatively small (not a huge museum) but it was packed with interesting info and many hands-on exhibits. Archaeologists were on site cataloging artifacts, and it was interesting to watch them work. The walk around the (reconstructed) ruins was easy and informative....More

The historic site lies beautyfully right of the bank of the Rio Grande. The guided tour was very interesting and informative. You will learn a lot. A place worth to visit.
