Things To Do

The Citadel of Tuzugoot

The view of the Citadel from the southern most point of the Tuzigoot Trail gives a great deal of perspective on the sheer size of the pueblo.

Visit Tuzigoot National Monument and witness the incredible legacy of a people who live in the Verde Valley 1,000 years ago.

Set aside a few hours to explore the museum, which was reopened in June 2011. Then roam the trails through the Tuzigoot pueblo and Tavasci Marsh. Spend time with a ranger and learn about the Sinagua and the lives they led in the Verde Valley. Attend the daily ranger program at 10:30am, or plan to come for one of our Special Events.

Become a Junior Ranger regardless of your age!
