Nicely organized attraction; paved loop is short and accessible by anyone. Very informative through all the exhibits or signs. Limited parking, so might take some time (we waited about 10 min) bookshop is nice too

What a surprise to see this so up close. About 90 minute drive out of Phoenix, we even drove through some snow flurries and had not planned on cold weather. Took a picnic lunch had tables down by the water. Wish we had included this in our trip to Jerome and Sedona since it's right on the way. Good to have a National Park Pass for times like this.

Glad we stopped, was definitely a neat thing to see. Only took about 20 mins to tour the whole place. Got some cool pictures and learned a few things. My husband and I are in our early thirties and would recommend this stop for families and friends of all ages. Stroller and wheelchair accessible.

You should stop to see this old Native American ruin. I can't for the life of me figure out how they got up and down to this "highrise" built into the rocks. It's like a whole little neighborhood of caves and walls in which the Natives lived. The Montezuma is the best preserved one but you can see the remnants of the others beside it. They sure had nice river views from their position!

You cannot get up there and walk in the ruins which seemed to have bummed some people out. History like that shouldn't be freely roamed so we were content to just look from below. It's a very nice paved walk so find for wheelchairs. You can get great pics from any angle.

Parking can get iffy--waits and so on. But not long as the whole attraction viewing, even if you peruse the Museum is probably less than 30 minutes so people are coming and going all the time.

Makes you feel rather insignificant. A wonderful experience.
