This is an ongoing excavating site of the Aztec Ruins. The structures have been unearthed and some have been renovated for conceptual history. There is a walking path for handicap individuals that is flat and wheelchair accessible. Many of the housing structures are still under rubble, but there is much to see. The newly renovated Info center is well done... 更多
Aztec Ruins National Monument preserves important Ancestral Puebloan architectural structures and engineering achievements. The place has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as part of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park. The staff at the visitor center were extremely nice, informative and friendly. There is a small admission fee to see the site, but it is free for holders... 更多
On our trip out west, we had planned to visit Mesa Verde, however after it was randomly closed, we decided to see the Aztec Ruins outside Farmington, and it paid off! Our guides, Ranger York and Ranger Dietrich had an amazing knowledge on the subject, and I personally learned a lot! The ruins are well-preserved, and fairly easy to navigate... 更多
I really like this National Monument because it allows you to get right in the middle of the ruins. When there, I can feel the history and it is thoroughly enjoyable. The visitor center has been updated and is well done - I particularly liked the display showing all the different groups of native americans. The film was very good... 更多

It gave a great representation and explanation of how and what it was used for back when it was occupied. The guides in the welcome center did a... 更多
One of the most impressive Native American sites I have visited. It is the most extensive site I have seen constructed in stone, and the only one with intact timber ceilings. The reconstructed large kiva is a highlight. The ranger on reception was most helpful.
This is a must-visit place when we have out-of-town guests. Visitors are allowed to walk through the ruins, really experiencing the atmosphere. Great photo opportunities as you stroll the ancient plaza. A small museum and a gift shop with various treasures are available. I suggest bringing a picnic lunch to enjoy the quiet cottonwood-shaded picnic area. A completely delightful national... 更多
Very easy to reach, especially if you are driving from Chaco to Mesa Verde. NPS staff were extremely helpful and informative. These relics/ruins are among the best in the Americas (being Peruvian and having travelled in Mexico, I argue that I know a bit about this topic). Certainly, while Chaco and Mesa Verde are more extensive and perhaps, better built,... 更多
