“...if you're near the area. (very near)”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this. Coolidge is an eye sore and the "Ruins" is a disappointment. It's better to read about and view the pictures....this way it remains scenic.

“Great place for older kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

we visited this site more than once. The museum is very informational and the docents and rangers are very knowledgeable. It is better for older kids because they may be learning about Arizona's history in school. The ruins are fenced off because of degradation over time and punk kids but you can still see how these indians lived
