  • Informative, entertaining, and fun. lots of info here. The woman at the desk was nice and informative.
  • This is THE place where artifacts are real. The 1/2 mile hike up to see the Pueblo escalate is great and the views are amazing.
  • Cool place to do a lot of hands on for the kids. Learned a lot about the Anasazi people.
  • 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.
  • 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.
