Basic Information

These Old Walls Can Speak

Wupatki National Monument preserves dozens of ancestral Puebloan villages. Though silence reigns today, this place was once a bustling hub of trade and life. People of the Northern Sinagua, Cohonina, Kayenta, and Hohokam archeological culture groups planted corns, beans, squash, and cotton among these seemingly barren hills and washes. Where many now see only dirt and hear only wind, ancient Native American people lived, raised children, and thrived. Wupatki is not as silent as it seems. Walls can talk, and if you linger long enough to listen, these teach many lessons.

As of October, 2020 - Entrance Fees and America The Beautiful Pass sales are Credit/Debit card only. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. In the near future, cash sales of Flagstaff Monument Annual and Interagency Annual passes will be provided through our cooperating partner Western National Parks Association in the park store.



Hours of Operation

The visitor center is open from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. MST every day except December 25 and January 1. You can find more details at our Operating Hours & Seasons page.


Entry Fees

For each vehicle, $25.00 covers the entry to both Wupatki and Sunset Crater Volcano National Monuments. Motorcycles may enter for $20.00, and the entry fee for bicyclists and pedestrians is $15.00. You can learn about annual passes and fee-free days on our Fees & Passes pages.



Because the pueblos are ancient and fragile, pets are not permitted on any trails. Pets are also not allowed in park buildings.

We welcome your pets in parking lots on leashes six feet (1.8 m) long or shorter. Please, never leave your pet in a vehicle, as desert temperatures can quickly cause heat stroke and death.
