The key attraction here is an ancient kiva with dozens of wall paintings. These paintings have been preserved and reproduced so one can get an excellent idea of what it was like to participate in ceremonies in that kiva. Our docent was quite knowledgeable (a PhD in chemistry who works on preservation.) The village played an important role in preserving... More

The museum is small, but very interesting. The outdoor exhibits are very interesting too! The location along the Rio Grande is a special treat. I recommend bringing a snack and enjoying the views of the river and mountain from one of the many picnic tables. The artifacts in the museum are displayed very well. The combination of the Spanish and... More

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.
