So much to see and learn at this monument. The visitor center is full of beautiful artifacts. The archeological dig of the dates back to the 1300. Be sure to take the tour and then take time to take the self guided tour of the grounds and then enjoy the path down to the Rio Grande. Last but not least... More

The ONLY kiva you can visit which shows mural paintings - it is so impressive although we will never know what the individual figures mean/express.

The history and tour was fun for the adults and the kids while the kids had a blast making arrowheads (and quite a few adults were too).

Sunday is free for New Mexico residents---score. The museum and the outside area has been redone recently. Great exhibits-museum (this is not a large museum). We had a great docent, Brian, who led on the walking tour and explanation of the Kiva. I have been here before and never done a docent led tour- glad I did. Brian was awesome... More

We visited the park on a day when our children were out of school for teacher in-service. It was a place we had driven past many times, but had not stopped. We decided to stop in and see if the children could complete a Junior Ranger booklet and receive a badge/patch. We lucked out and arrived just before a guided... More

THis overlooked place is a wonder. It is the only place I have ever seen with the original painted walls in the kiva. Nice little spot next to the Rio Grande. SOme of the preserved wall paintings are in a small museum

The area provided good history into the early explorations of Coronado in the New Mexico area. There are picnic sites under shade. The docent provided a tour into the kiva which was interesting for the art work.It is very warm this time of year. Wear good walking shoes for using the kiva ladder. Price was minimal plus one can save... More

The Pueblo ruins are replicas but they are built directly over the adobe ruins from the 1400s-1600s. The park is laid out very well with paved paths that have excellent informative signs. Diane our docent was very passionate about the Pueblo's past and is full of knowledge. The best part was viewing the mural paintings. The campground is a delight... More
