The Coronado Historic site is a bit less than meets the eye. The highlight is a docent who delivers an overview of the Pueblos residents inside a restored Kiva including some of the wall paintings discovered when it was unearthed about 1935. Beyond that and...More

An amazing history of the Pueblo people. See the hands on museum, great for all ages. Guide was knowledgable and passionate about the history in this place. Go into a Kiva and experience the art work/meanings of wall drawings. Very cool.

Came onto the site via a river float adventure. There are limited artifacts to view. Two vendors were set up with wares. Some ancient ruins were located on site that portrayed a culture in the area.

In the crowded field of ancestral Puebloan sites, the Coronado Historic Site offers little in terms of spectacular structures, but it is a hidden gem. This isn't Chaco, or Aztec, or even Salmon. The visible adobe-work is marginal and often reconstructed. What it--and no other...More

Easy to accèss off us 550 in Bernalillo, but entrance a bit obscured and splits to dirt road. Look for small sign. Parking lot not big - issue for trailers, motor homes. Ruins very well preserved and good showcase for those to never see a...More

To really see the site, allow a couple of hours at least. The guides are public employees and you need neither hire nor tip them. The guide we had was an archeology grad student who obviously loved what he was doing. The... More
