On Wednesday, February 2, 2011, the Fire Suppression System in the Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum ruptured causing the park to close portions of the exhibit areas. The museum lobby, diorama area, and auditorium will remain open for public visitation. Park entrance fees will be waived from February 7 to February 16 while repairs are made to the building.
The Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum is open daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Additional information may be obtained by calling the park's main information line at (970) 529-4465.
