This is a fantastic site, the ruins are very well preserved and the walk is an easy one. You'll want to take plenty of pictures. The history is all laid out for you at each station and you can use a very well put together book from the visitors center which details stops along the way and give you the... More

I was glad that I got to see this lovely exhibit, not far from Farmington where I was staying. Beautifully kept and you can appreciate our modern lives from a visit here. I liked that I was able to walk inside the old structures. It was a cold day so I did rush through a bit, and I was leaving... More

Wonderfully presented, this place allows you to visit ancient Puebolan ruins in a way that allows you to understand both the science and the story behind it, seeing the native view and leaving us with a very rich, resonant and moving tour of the past and all the amazing things that happened here. Take time to really see all that... More

There is a nice video, then a self-guided tour through the ruins. Having something at each number would be easier than giving you a book describing each location --that you have to return. Visitor center museum is pretty limited.

We had only planned to stop here if we had enough time en route from Durango to Tucson. We are so pleased that we did stop. This is not a huge site but is very interesting and we managed to see everything in the hour we had before the site closed. There is a self-guided tour which explains everything very... More

What a nice surprise. My husband's great uncle was the sheriff in Aztec, NM from 1909-1916 so while in this area we decided to stop at the museum and see what we could find out. The lady there was wonderful. She pointed us to the Pioneer Village where there was several reconstructed buildings to check out, a General Store, Post... More

Inside there are a couple of rooms of limited interest, to me at least. Except for the barber's including a bath tub as would have been used. Outside there are a collection of 1900 era buildings; school ,shop ,post office ,sheriff's office, bank, church rec Very intrredting, could have Bern made better by employing actors to bring the town to...

Good place to see ancient Indian ruins. Some are restored, some not. However, if you're not up to the tailbone jarring ride out to Chaco Canyon, this would be your preferred destination.
