Museum needs to be better lighted, most boxed exhibits were dim or not lighted. Use the provided number guide book to see the sights. The church is a work in progress to preserve . Bring hat and water for outside. Interesting

Nice small museum and visitor center. Good signs on walking trail thru ruins and garden. Make sure to get walking tour booklet in visitor center. Plan on hour or so for walking tour. They do have special events and guided tours at times.

We recommend the free guided tour. Such a great history lesson, how the Spanish priests arrived and worked with the local tribes and early ranchers, etc, also the history of the river valley. Recommend to all interested in the area history.

Unlike the centuries old churches we visited in New Mexico - this church felt sterile & unloved - without a soul. It is in poor repair and in horrible condition. There isn't a sense of peace that I've felt in other relic churchs. I get...More
