    This was a great place to feel the spirit of the people who lived here. Very educational. Fee was only $3 per adult and no charge for kids. We are full time a RV'er going to all the national parks. The Anasazi Heritage Center was the best place we have ever visited. There is a short 1/2 mile hike to a Escalante Pueblo site that is handicap accessible. We loved every thing about the Anasazi Heritage Center.

    Loved it. The building is good , fits with the environment and traditional designs. Good on site ruins to visit after a half mile hike up.

    Fantastic cultural and relics center in Dolores. Well worth a few hours, including taking a short hike up to the ruins.
