  • Very informative and interesting historical site. I had called ahead to inquire about the tours, which are only offered when a docent is available; but we were lucky to have John who was great. All...

  • We were treated by a knowledgeable guide. Who was very personable and gave us the time to explore the Kiva. The location is so beautiful having a great open Vista of the Sandia Mountains. The cost of entry was reasonable. Video of the history was also available.
  • Amazing historical gem in the middle of town. Please take time to visit our wonderfully preserved history. It's important to know where we come from to better know where we may go. This was a very pleasant tour and I learned quite a bit.
  • This is a gem if you are looking for an outdoor learning activity! We went on the first Sunday of the month which is free admission but even if we had to pay, this would have been worth it!! Great narrative about the past along with a guided walking tour! Nice area as well to have lunch (bring own).
  • Informative little hike with a museum and ancient ruins. Every first Sunday of the month is free for New Mexico residents! This is a great spot off 550, an easy walk path with covered areas and one heck of a spectacular view. The hours are 10 to 4 so try to have at least 30 minutes to explore, there are a couple of trails to wander around the area and the Bosque. Staff was awesome to talk to and restrooms were clean and available. Good exercise and photography opportunities.
  • The people who work there are super friendly and knowledgeable. This place is not big but has a lot of interesting information to dig. The kiva is not open. The paintings are in a room, preserved well to tell the history. I can almost imagine how people once lived there. How they work, eat, sing, tell stories, raise kids, love and fight.
