These ruins are a little misleading. All the ruins you see are modern reconstructions on the original site of an Indian pueblo. There is a tiny museum, and then you take a tour of the small site. My guide was EXCELLENT. I chose not to go down into the kiva because there is no ladder ever built that I cannot... More

We walked around the grounds and read the signs. We did not take a guided tour or go inside the building.

This is the third tie I have been to the site. I take the tour with Docent and then explore the area all over again. I love being able to walk to the river and envision being there 300 years in the past. Two of the time I was there a pueblo resident showed me gardening techniques and how they... More

This was a very interesting visit. Even the teenagers were interested! The kiva tour was something you won't see anywhere else in the southwest. They are doing a great job preserving such amazing culture and traditions of the native Pueblo people.

Small but very interesting historic site where you can see original Pueblo paintings and experience a recreation of a square Kiva. There is an entire community buried there that was excavated, studied, plundered and then covered over again. Absolutely worth your time if you're interested in how the Native Americans lived.

Docent knew what he was talking about. History of the area very informative and worth the hour or so spent there.

CORONADO HISTORIC SITE which is located just north of Albuquerque. We walked down to the water edge of the Rio Grande but it was so overgrown and on a small cliff you couldn’t get to the river. The visitors center has some beautiful murals that were discovered in one of the kiva’s. They were so interesting. You can’t take pictures... More

The exhibit area is small, but the history is fascinating. They have recreated a small part of the original settlement to give you an idea of what life was like so long ago. The outside area is easily walked even for the partially handicapped (my husband has bad knees), but we did not attempt the ladder down into the recreated... More
