Visitor Center Rennovations
April, May, & June 2014 are scheduled for major electrical and heating/cooling system rennovation. The Visitor Center will be closed but restrooms, movie auditorium, historic ruins area, and picnic area will remain open (no fees during rennovation).
At this time Casa Grande Ruins National Monument offers a choice of three field trips based on the grade level of the students. Puppets and Preservation serves Pre-school through Grade 2. Culture, Crafts, Corn is most appropriate for grades 3 to 5. Talking Timelines works best with grades 6 and up. Programs are available Tuesday through Friday with reservations 3 weeks in advance. Fees may be waived if your group qualifies, please apply for a fee waiver at least 2 weeks before your planned visit. Group size is limited to 50 students maximum. Group visits are generally limited to November through April and during the mornings between 9:00 a.m. and noon as all activities are conducted outdoors. Please call with a date in mind and a good estimate of the number of students you will be bringing.
The search fields below are not active as Casa Grande Ruins National Monument does not participate in on-line reservations. This lack of participation means we can customize your visit according to your needs- starting times, multiple days for the same school, age level program of your choice rather than a pre-set program. Please call the park to discuss your needs and available dates. (520) 723-3172 is the main park telephone number.
