City of Aztec, New Mexico
Aztec Ruins National Monument
At Aztec Ruins, visitors step back in time as they walk a short, self-guided trail through a 900-year-old ancestral Pueblo Great House and experience the only reconstructed Great Kiva in existence. This fee-free park integrates archeological history and modern tribal perspectives into newly redesigned museum exhibits, a park film, and a trail guide (audio or printed). Also on-site is a park store, picnic area, Old Spanish Trail history and walking trail, a heritage garden (in-season), and a short native plants trail. One to two hours is recommended for these activities.
Park hours vary by season; visit the park website for the latest hours information. Advance group reservations are appreciated. The monument easily accommodates groups of 50 or more, has a bus pick-up/drop-off area and free bus parking. All groups will receive an orientation from a ranger when they arrive. Visitors must stay on the marked, self-guided trail. Off-trail traffic is damaging to the fragile archeological resources. No dining is available on site, but many excellent options are available in the historic City of Aztec, just minutes away by bus or by walking along the Old Spanish Trail.
