The pueblo is a very peaceful settlement. One that exhibits native American culture and how the American Indians have lived for many hundreds of years.
We went, had a ten minute tour, and wandered around for another thirty minutes. Honestly, it is not worth the money - sorry. You won't be here for more than an hour - tops. We bought a two dollar cookie and some five dollar flat bread, so it was a $40 visit for two people. Historical significance, sure, can't miss... More
A little pricey to get in...$16 per adult but this place is one of a kind incredible. The original structures are reported to be over 1000 years old. The church is incredible also with the ornate carvings and designs. Some of the "residents" have set up shops on the bottom floors of thier dwellings and the goods & prices vary...as... More
Think it's overpriced just to look at a handful of old buildings most of which you can't go in. Maybe $16 for festival but when nothing is going on it should be under $10. People in the shops were nice but wouldn't go back at that price. Wouldn't have went in at all when I realized it was that much... More
I live in a Native community so was actually uncomfortable going to one where people pay to get in. As other reviews said, the guard does come running out when you go to park.

Boring! If you don't buy a personal guide you'll just stand there saying gee, dirt walls and a few wooden ladders. Yes, historical, but I've paid less for more interaction. Several homes were shops with dirt floors selling handmade items that I found to be over-priced. Cute church with not much inside was probably only interesting building. We were in... More
Well worth a visit if you are in Taos. I thought the cemetery was spectacular. But it probably had something to do with the incredibly blue sky and while clouds that day. Great photos. I just enjoyed being there and feeling the place. I found myself just sitting down and watching, listening, which was fun.
To get into 16$ must be paid; we were told that the fee is as high as that because in the past tourists didn't pay for the photography fee even though they had a camera device so everyone pays for it nowadays...the collected money is used for exmple to take care of old people, so they say it is for...

I've been going there since 1975 and it feels the same each time. The mountain, the cotton wood tree, church and adobe pueblo. Go slowly and be respectful of the people who live there. Check out the cemetery over the adobe wall too.
