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.

Visited here by chance after seeing Aztec ruins. Very friendly and helpful staff. The recreation of the pioneer village was very interesting. We spent much longer here than anticipated. Highly recommended.

This museum is typical in some ways, with eclectic displays of various artifacts, a small village, etc., but it does an above average job of interpretation. The staff (volunteer and a new paid individual on her first day) are enthusiastic and generally knowledgeable. The museum...More

Worth the trip to enjoy the interpretive centre and the ancient village tucked away in this little Four Corners region location.

This is a great little museum. There is a good size interior part with displays, but the best part for me was the outdoor village. Great displays and very informative showing live during the pioneer times.
