  • Fun stop, can go through it in an hour or stay and explore longer. Beautiful views and interesting history lesson.
  • This little place is just 30 minutes from Albuquerque, it also has a camping ground. The lady that was running it that day was very nice and informational. If you stop there first she can also sell you the tickets for the site in Jemez. Now that was very convenient. I loved the Rio Grande flowing in the back of it. They even let you put on a replica of the armor and it is heavy. Almost forgot, on Sunday credit card machines are off you pay in cash $5.00
  • Easy place to walk around, lots of informative history markers (we didn't wait for the tour.) Worth a short stop! Just be sure to stay on the paths as there are definitely snakes!
  • Full of historic artifacts. Docent was knowledgable and friendly during the tour. It leaves you with a feeling of how truly magical the Pueblo people were.
  • My mom gives the tours (sometimes) so gotta love it.
