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.

This National Park operated site is a must. Your learn a lot for a better understanding of the culture of ancient Anasazi society. Visit Aztec Ruins BEFORE visiting Chaco. Aztec was searched for years by archeologists and is beautifully restored, including the great kiva.

We enjoyed the time we spent at the Aztec Ruins. They give you great perspective as to how this village was designed and functioned. These ruins were a small sampling of what an entire village must have been like.
