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 Casa Grande Ruins were extensively excavated and studied by Dr. Jesse Fewkes in 1906. Previously, visitors removed artifacts and took pieces of the walls and roofs as souvenirs.
