Much of what is here is only exposed after entering the museum. They are not permitted to promote or advertise the culturally sensitive murals. I returned the next day just to walk the beautiful nature trails which take you along the Rio Grande.

I attempted to visit in July, but it was closed on Tuesdays. I went back in January and am so glad that I did. It was a beautiful day and I chose to walk the trails. The trails are very well marked, the grounds have several benches and beautiful picnic spots so you can stop and enjoy the peace and... More

Our family (2 adults, 13 yo, and an 11 yo) had a great experience! The museum is very hands on - our kids enjoyed trying on the armor, grinding corn, picking up the animal pelts, and (most of all) playing with the musket, sword and crossbow. The two rangers on staff were extremely helpful and informative (especially Ethan). The setting... More

Wonderful recreation of parts of this seminal Puebloan settlement. The kiva is fascinating. Guides are informative and well versed. Gift shop is great too. Come early in the evening before sunset close to Christmas for dancing and luminarias.

Arrive in time for a guided tour of restored Kiva. Actually attend the annual cultural days event which was Saturday, October l8, 2014. They had booths set up. A pit was uncovered where pottery had been fired in the traditional way. On Friday we saw the pit under construction, then the pottery added and preparations for firing it. Finally, pit... More

This site records the first contact between Spanish explorer Coronado and native people who still used kivas in their village. Wall art from a kiva has been conserved and some of is on display in the visitor center. We were struck by the stylized figures and the beautiful symbolism in the art. It's a one-of-a-kind opportunity to see evidence of... More
