Owner description: Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village let visitors experience pioneer life in the American West. Aztec's history of human habitation goes back a thousand years, when Native Americans settled along the Animas River. Pioneer Village gives visitors the opportunity to revisit a community of the early American West. Children will enjoy climbing aboard the caboose and going in a one-room schoolhouse, just two of the many Pioneer Village buildings and exhibits. Visit Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village to learn about modern Aztec's early days.

It may look small from the outside but fully loaded and extends outside. So much to see from history and culture to the oil industry and geology.

This is a unique museum of items from the turn of the century & older. On the grounds are several actual buildings of the 1800s (school, jail, home, general store, livery, lawyer, etc.) Very informative. Would be nicer if the museum had A/C.

Love the old village. There was a special event going on and there was horseback riding and people in costume pretending to be characters from the old west.

Between looking for jewelry nd seeing the sights, we stopped in at the Aztec Museum. That day (Fathers' Day) was free admission. It was a small but interesting place to visit.
