  • We love visiting the historic sights hete in New Mexico! The visitors center was closed. There is usually a charge, but today it was free. There is a guided tour if you ask. We chose to walk on our own.
  • We were treated by a knowledgeable guide. Who was very personable and gave us the time to explore the Kiva. The location is so beautiful having a great open Vista of the Sandia Mountains. The cost of entry was reasonable. Video of the history was also available.
  • Amazing historical gem in the middle of town. Please take time to visit our wonderfully preserved history. It's important to know where we come from to better know where we may go. This was a very pleasant tour and I learned quite a bit.
  • Incredible site- the only painted kiva open to the public is here. You can see it on the guided tour- which I highly recommend. Docent was very knowledgeable and staff were friendly. A true gem of a stop!
  • Loved this random last minute adventure, with 3 hours to kill before jumping on the plain home. Thankfully it’s only a 30min drive to the airport, with a beautiful mountain side view… When I got there, I was blessed with extremely light random snow flurries here and there… making it some what magical and the freezing wind slightly less painful 😅…. So the volunteer giving the guided tour was literally the NICEST older gentleman EVER… and Eagerly offered to brave the freezing wind with me in order to give me a tour… letting me know, before we even started, that it would be a quickened version because i came 30 minutes before tours ended and the tour generally takes at-least an hour… so bless his heart, he kept apologizing throughout the entire tour for “rushing” when I was soOo flippin cold I was wishing he’d go faster 😂🤣😭😭 he was AMAZING! Especially considering the fact that it was just me on the “tour” Lolol Also you MUST STOP at the gift shop!!!! Everything is unique and relevant!!!
