Plan Your Visit


Step Back in Time

During a 1-2 hour visit, you can travel back 900 years to the time of a thriving ancestral Pueblo great house community. A ranger will greet you at the visitor center. From there, you can tour the museum, watch the 15-minute video "Aztec Ruins: Footprint of the Past," and explore a three-story archeological site on a half-mile self-guided trail. Trail guides are available in the visitor center, and ranger-guided programs are offered during the summer months.
