We enjoyed stretching our legs and walking about here. Gifts and items seemed to be overpriced. We were disappoints that several of the buildings were only open for a few minutes every hour or so. Next time through, we'll keep going and use our time elsewhere.

There were a lot more things to see at HTP than just the trading post itself. We first stopped at the Visitor Center, where rangers gave us information on the site and told us about the tours that were available. We then checked out the store, which had many interesting items ranging from everyday foodstuffs and household goods to woven... More

Off the beaten track, but worth a detour. The old store is still functioning today with cozy, back in time atmosphere. Attached rooms have nice collection of Navajo kachinas, some pottery and jewelry, as well as lots of very expensive rugs. You won't need more than 30 minutes, but it's a nice visit.

Very interesting and historic! Plan on spending some quality time if you visit this historic trading post. A bit off the beaten path, but worth the trip.

We were on a LONG stretch of highway and decided to see what interesting things we had near us. We found the Hubbell trading post. We stopped at this historical site and had a great couple of hours. I cannot say enough about the helpful staff. We enjoyed some sandwiches from store and some drinks. The self guided tour just... More

We drove all day to get there because they still have Indian come in and trading things. They we're suppose to have things like basket weaving and ect. We saw none to these. The jewelry pretty high. Western wear was expessive, is really nothing to see all the way out to it. Desert was pretty boring.

My wife and I stopped here on our way from Window Rock to the Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, we were too early and it was not open. The buildings are beautiful examples of the local architecture and what I could see through the windows looked interesting. I would probably stop here the next time by, assuming I get there at the...

We called in here as we passing and saw the signs. We are so glad we did. We went on the tour of the house which was fascinating. It was like stepping back in time and the paintings were wonderful. The tour guide was very passionate about the place which added to the enjoyment. The fact that it is still... More
