  • The ladies here were very nice! Go when you have the time to explore the whole thing. We didn't have a tour, just a quick walk through but I would definitely go back. It was incredible to walk from room to room and imagine the lifestyle of those who once lived here. Nice experience!
  • Five stars for the ruins, one star for the people who run it. We travelled hours out of our way and stopped in. We arrived and paid, then were told to wait a while for a movie in the visitors center. After the video, we had hardly started when the ranger came and told us they were closing the park and we had to leave. We were never warned by the staff that the monument was closing, and never refunded. When we mentioned to the ranger we hadn't been informed, she couldn't have cared less. Great place, but not well run. If you plan on going, go as early as possible so you're not kicked out when your tour starts, especially when you PAID!
  • Very friendly and informative staff here. It is the smaller off the beaten tracks National parks which are nicer to visit. Not many people here to crowd it which is very nice.
  • The Aztec Ruins was a nice little hidden gem. We stopped in Farmington, NM which was a half way point in our overall trip and were looking for things to see and do. I did a quick search on the web and found this. My family enjoyed it and my little ones became Junior Rangers while walking through the ruins. Great time!
  • Again we got lucky and this beautiful Aztec National Park. Very nice informative historical place.
