  • Great staff and full of information. Watch the shirt film in the auditorium. It was very insightful.
  • A very cool smaller museum. It has easy to understand exhibits and interesting artifacts that are close up for you to look at. Allow 1/2 hour to 1 hour I think to enjoy. If you are here in the off season its a good place to wait for your ranger lead hike to Spruce Tree House to start.
  • Background information to the Mesa Verde Park.
