The reconstruction of the great kiva helped create a more powerful palpable sense of what it must have been like to live here 900 years ago. I felt the magic and the spirit of the ancient people as I walked the grounds. Don’t miss it!

The ruins and museum were both so interesting. The park ranger was extremely informative. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. I am so glad I stopped!

There's a self-guided tour that takes you through a bunch of buildings. Be sure to see the reconstructed Great Kiva.
