Salmon Ruins is an exceptional place. We toured the museum as well as the ruins outside the museum. Larry Baker the museum director is steeped in Archeology with 35 years of rich experience. We hired Mr. Baker through their tour program to take us to all of the local Pueblo ruins. Chaco Canyon ruins, Bisti Wilderness and Dinetah Pueblitos and... 更多
Could there be a better way to understand Chaco Canyon Culture and surrounding areas than a personal tour? Tori Myers was fantastic. Her knowledge and passion were amazing. She took us through several areas, explained how they were used, pointed out unique things. This was the adventure of my dreams! This is not about the Salmon Ruins site, just about... 更多
This is an excellent opportunity to get "up close and personal" with a well-excavated Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) ruin. The museum has an interesting collection, though their displays are old-school and a bit shopworn. The Salmon homestead and other buildings on the grounds are interesting, but in need of some TLC. The ruins are really the star of this show. Be... 更多
This is one of the Ancestral Pueblo great houses which evolved in the San Juan River Basin about 1000 years ago under the influence of the Chaco Canyon culture.

We did the self-guided walking tour of this site. It was very interesting with good reference materials. Unlike other Pubelo ancestor dwellings you could get close to these without strenuous walking. We were able to enter one room of the ruins. Worth the time and small fee.
We chose to book a private tour of Chaco Canyon. Tori was knowledgeable, interesting, and fun...definitely a people person. Having our own personal archaelogist was a plus...the fact that she drove us in a comfortable Suburban, supplied lunch, and lots of ice water was tops.
Needed an interesting morning walk. A very informative display with a wide variety of artifacts and informative panels. The ruins are impressive as are representations of other types of housing structures indigenous of the area.
It is less impressive than the National Monument at Aztec but well worth the visit - the museum has nice things - staff very helpful and welcoming - had a great visit
We went on the Chaco Canyon tour. Larry was an outstanding tour guide. His knowledge of the area was incredible and it felt like you were right there in the time period. You can feel his passion while he talks and it makes you feel the same way. It is a once in a lifetime experience. Book it.
