  • There are a lot of museums and things to see in this world, and while I'll never make it to all of them, I'm glad I got to stop here. We stopped as we left Hovenweep and Lowry Pueblo, and headed on to Mesa Verde. This is well worth the stop if you have the time. The collection is simply superb and the staff are some of the nicest folks I've ever met, in a museum or otherwise. BLM really did a fantastic job here and should be commended.
  • My kids loved this place! Very interactive museum and a must see before going to Mesa Verde or Canyons of the Ancient. Plus there is a paved hike in the back to see some ruins.
  • Film is a bit dated, exhibit is interesting and was a good place to visit in conjunction with Mesa Verde to learn more about Native American culture.
  • We almost passed by this gem, glad we didn't! Aside from being a great museum, the staff were very helpful in giving us recommendations on what to see in the Canyons of the Ancients.
  • Anither great dwelling and gathering place of the Ancient Ones. Not to be missed!
