I guess they call them ruins for a reason, but there wasn't as much left here as I expected. The film about the Hohokum culture was very interesting and explained their civilization. There were a couple recreated huts but I wished there had been more left to see of the original village. Bring your umbrella to use as a parasol... More

that all depends on your time. We found it very informative, the staff was extremely friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. You can certainly go back in time and imagine what the Hohokam accomplished in this dry and hot climate, amazing! We definitely suggest to take the staff up on the offer of an umbrella. No matter how hot it is, the... More

This was not the place to go on a sweltering hot day like we did. We had the entire trail to ourselves and we were given umbrellas for shade. But we could not read all the plaques because the kids were complaining big time. The water fountain by the trail gave hot drinks which was no help. It is an... More

What a fascinating museum. We arrived in Phoenix, booked into the Doubletree and we're able to get the hotel shuttle to take us to this beautiful museum/park run by the city of Phoenix. The museum centers around an archeological dig and celebrates the culture of the Hohokam people who lived here from about 700 A.D. until around 1450 A.D. When... More

Pueblo Grande is an excellent opportunity to view first-hand local dwellings of Native Americans in AZ. There is an excellent museum with wonderful artifacts. The outside attractions of pueblos is unique and very detailed. There is an easy walk around the ancient site, that is also handicap accessible. Information and maps are readily available in the visitor center, and also... More

We were really looking forward to a visit to this site and were disappointed to find it closed. Unusual to be able to find a good archeological site in a city in the US

This site is only a short walk from hotels in a neighborhood of HEAVY TRAFFIC. The airport is nearby. The museum has a helpful orientation film and exhibits that deal with both archaeology the early native residents. On the museum grounds are paths leading to the remains of Hohokam mound platforms and dwellings. Our visit was an hour well spent!

This museum packs a lot in and sends you on your way with a lot of information. Perfect size and the price is right, normal entry $6 pp. Also it's the perfect combination of indoor and outdoor exhibits. If you don't have a lot of time this is the perfect place to absorb some history of the area. Quite near... More

Not a whole lot to see here, but interesting if you've never seen anything like it before. The changing exhibition inside about ghost towns was neat.
