  • Very interesting to lean how the people of that time lived and dug their canals by hand. The video presentation was very informative and gave insight into their way of life.  more »
  • Great stop for a national monument that focuses on the history and culture of the Indians. A well preserved ruin, though birds seem to be destroying it. You can go through the museum and ruin in under...  more »
  • A great example of a well preserved set of ruins in the region. The visitor center is very informative and air conditioned. Make sure you bring lots of water even for this short walk.  more »

  • This place is awesome. It's a great look into the past. When you first walk in the whole place is filled with information, to help you better understand the area at the time of building the ruins. How they moved water to grow their crops. Even shows you the artistry of the time. When you go outside you a close up look at the ruins, which are really neat. I highly suggest checking it out.
  • I had read up about the park before going there, so I knew not to expect anything very large. It met my expectations, and it was an interesting but brief visit. The visitor's center is nice, there is a good video to watch there, and the tour guide was informative. I wished there was a bit more area to hike but I understand that this is a sensitive cultural resource and therefore the land is protected. Nice place to see if you are nearby but I wouldn't go too far out of my way to see it.
  • Quick stop with my two boys, 12 and 15. They loved it! It's a lot bigger than we thought it would be. Nice museum, friendly staff. Didn't do the tour, just walked around and took photos. There was a large owl under the big canopy, that was cool to see. Nice and quick stop, use the restroom (clean), and get some cool photos.
  • My kids and I enjoyed it. There was a $5 fee per person. We watched a short movie on its history, viewed the inside exhibits and got great pics of the ruins. Suggest going when the weather is cool as it gets hot walking around outside.
  • It is an interesting historical site. It is worth seeing once, but that is enough. Inside the museum there is a movie room where you can see a documentary of the Ruins narrated by Adam Beach.
