  • They have guided tours during the summer months but we did a self guided tour in April. It gave me a new perspective of how the Native American Indians evolved. Very different than Mesa Verde.  more »

  • I'm not quite sure what I expected but it wasn't quite this. The size of the existing structures and the condition of the site are both amazing. They have a self guided tour that you can walk at your own pace, stopping at numbered markers along the way describing points of interest. It was very educational and am amazing experience. You shouldn't need more than an afternoon to get through it all.
  • So very cool. No charge for the self guided tour. Nice staff. The ruins themselves are awesome and you get right up in it.
  • A great place to spend a few hours with the family. Helpful staff ready to talk.
  • Of all the ancestrial puebloan sites in San Juan County, NM the Aztec Ruin is the most developed for tourists. You'll find National Forest staff, gift shop, re-built kiva, walking tours, theater and park - all near RV and motel facilities in Aztec, NM. The only thing keeping it from a 5-star rating is that it's not really much of an active archaeological dig anymore.
  • The ruins are amazingly preserved and the museum is informative. The guides who run the place are interested in everyone who comes to visit and are able to answer any questions you may have.
