You have to pay to get inside. We had a park pass, but I'm torn on whether to recommend this site if this is the only park you will see or you are getting/already have a park pass. The structure is impressive, but it's the...More

We spent just over an hour walking around. It is very interesting and also very peaceful. I really liked the Indian flute player - his music enhanced the atmosphere greatly. It is amazing what these people accomplished so long ago.

Wonderful history. Only down side, the young man who greeted us, was quite rude. Nice gift shop, not too expensive

A display at the visitor center says “Preserving the past for the future”, and they have done a wonderful job at it. It’s a short loop on a nicely paved road with ample shade, where we get to see the castle and some neighboring dwellings....More

Montezuma Castle National Monument is one of the most impressive ancient Indian structures I have seen. The highlight is a 4 to 5 five story structure that is built into a cliff hundreds of feet up. Built between 1100 and 1400, it is amazing to...More

I've passed by MC many times, but this was the first time I stopped. I'm glad I did. It's a nice walk to look at some awesome ruins and to learn about cliff-dweller history. Very friendly NPS staff interpret the site for you.

Easy stop between Phoenix and Sedona/Flagstaff. Great to take on some scenery, history, and a short walk. The Arizona Sycamore tree was something that the whole family noticed... The trees line the river beds and the yellow leaves this time of year make it stound...More

I spent between 1-2 hours there (I also like the indoor exhibits). We did not have chance to visit Tuzigoot.

No. There is a gently slipping walkway that would be appropriate for a walker though. The "ruins" are not extensive and the path is quite short.

We traveled from Prescott and did not stop in Jerome, but we did the castle and the well in about 2-2.5 hours. And you cannot go up into the castle. Walking tours stopped when geologists deemed it unsafe.
