My friend and I came to the Cliff Dwellings without having any idea what to expect. We had decided not to look it up prior to going and we were not disappointed! We learned so much from this experience and enjoyed being able to immerse ourselves in history. I believe this would be great for anyone wanting to learn more about the area’s Native American history. 10/10 would recommend, even if you don’t know what to expect!

This place was truly amazing. We loved the self guided tour where you can climb all over and through everything. The gift shop was huge and the museum was great.

A lovely sunny day at the Cliff Dwellings as part of our Manitou Springs weekend getaway. The views alone are worth it but the dwellings themselves were fascinating and informative. Appreciated the music piped in which added to the atmosphere. We noticed families with children who were only interested in climbing around but for the older visitors there was an appreciation for the history of the Anasazi community and culture.

It was smaller then I thought. Took all but 15 minutes to walk around, very crowded. I guess it's one of those places you have to see once.

We had a great time experiencing this attraction. The ability to walk through the dwellings and actually touch everything was fun. Not very busy during our visit so there were no lines. Shop/museum was interesting and fun to visit.

There is a pueblo which houses a museum and very extensive gift shop. The cliff dwellings we’re interesting and there was an interior path where you could walk almost end to end. I was there off season do the snack bar was closed. The admission price is good for the whole day so you can come & go if you like. It’s probably more impressive if you’ve never been to other cliff dwellings before.

Pretty neat place but pretty congested and a little awkward to get around. I loved being able to bring my pup inside too-- but it's tough to get around some of it with your dog. It's an hour at most to do everything but I would definitely recommend it for it's uniqueness and being able to get up close and personal with the dwellings. The staff in the store was exceptional.
