We spent a nice afternoon exploring the ruins and visiting the museum at Tuzigoot. It was a nice hike and good place to check out while doing the Sedona experience.

As far as history goes, it's interesting. But after just a few minutes the kids got bored. It was very cheap though, $5. So I guess it was worth the drive once. I wouldn't go back though.

If you're interested in the history of Native Americans, this is a place to visit. It is amazing and a must-see in this area, along with Montezuma Castle and Well further west

Very accessible and well documented. The "ruins" were recreated back in the 1930s as part of a WPA-style program. At first I was a little disappointed by that, but they were recreated accurately, so you do get a feel for what the village was like and it's pretty cool to climb to the top structure. The visitor center does a good job of providing information on the ancient civilization that lived there, but also does a good job of explaining the excavation and how the methods in the 1930s differ from how things are done today.

To learn about cultures that once thrived in our very modern country is fantastic. And to walk through the dwellings, breathe the air, touch the ancient stones where families once lived, where farmers worked to design irrigation, where warriors defended their homes - it was great.
