We go to PNHP a lot because its only about 27 miles from the Plaza Area to the Park’s Visitor’s Center. It has gotten so much better through the years as the park service has built a new museum addition, nice restrooms and gift shop....More

Free - Great exhibits and the ruins are a short not to hard walk on a great path. Would recommend. You get to go down into Kivas - so cool. Lots of history.

The visitor center of the park had wonderful displays and very informative historic information. It's one of the most well done and informative ones we've seen. The trail out to the mission and pueblo ruins is short (less than 1.5 mi) and easy. Highly recommended.
