We stopped here with our kids (ages 12-17). Cute little museum and great trail through the ruins. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cute gift store with good selection of kids books about Native American history.

Having lived in the 4 Corners in the past, I've visited most of the developed ruins on more than one occasion. Salmon ranks as a favorite, because it combines easy accessibility with a quality interpretation center, interesting museum and even a fun gift shop.

I was skeptical because of its name, but I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It was very informative and is worth a stop.

The museum is short and concise, and the self-guided tour very thorough. I enjoyed comparing the building patterns with other puebloan ruins. The Salmon family homestead and other reconstructed structures gave this attraction a well-rounded experience.

Nice museum and self guided tour of the ruins. It is run by the county. Not as developed as some pueblo sites but still quite enjoyable. Path around the ruins is somewhat rocky and not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs.

We really enjoyed our visit here. We stopped late in the afternoon, so we only spent about 30 minutes in the museum, and the rest of the time at the original ruins. It was quite fascinating, and we were glad to be able to go...More
