Visitor Center Rennovations
Park is having major heating/cooling system work done. The Visitor Center is closed (we don't know how long-mid July?) but restrooms, movie auditorium, historic ruins area, and picnic area remain open (no fees or pass sales during rennovation)
Plan A Field Trip
We would like to assist you and your students in having an enjoyable experience that you can appreciate and understand in the context of your curriculum.
At the same time, please remember that Casa Grande Ruins National Monument is an archeological site and NOT a recreational area. We are entrusted with protecting and preserving the cultural and natural resources at Casa Grande Ruins and providing opportunities for other visitors to enjoy and experience the Monument. Children, as well as all visitors, are expected to conduct themselves with respect for the fragile ruins and for other visitors.
Things to consider...
Did You Know?
The ancient Sonoran Desert people made shell jewelry bracelets, rings, necklaces and pendants. Some of the jewelry was inlaid with turquoise, others had designs etched into the surface. The shells were acquired from as far away as the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of California.
