The Museum is Closed Until Further Notice.
Located 3 miles (4.8km) west of Desert View Watchtower, the Tusayan Museum and Pueblo (AKA Tusayan Ruin) interprets the remains of a small Ancestral Puebloan village. The museum is closed at this time.
When the museum reopens, you can:
- View: 2000–4000 year old artifacts along with traditional handicrafts made by Grand Canyon's associated tribes.
- Learn: about the prehistoric people who once made this place their home.
Tusayan Pueblo was a thriving community that created pottery, arrowheads and other household artifacts.
During the summer of 2022, the Tusayan Pueblo site and self-guiding trail are open on weekends, (Friday, Saturday and Sunday - and Mondays of holiday weekends) between 9 am and 4 pm.
- Walk a relatively flat 0.1 mile (200 m) self-guiding trail around the site.
- Imagine Puebloan Indian life some 800 years ago.
- Ranger-led tours of the pueblo may be offered on weekends. Look for signs, or ask a ranger at the site.
