We stopped at this museum on our way back to Durango from four corners. Nice little museum. Enjoyed the walk outside through the ruins.

A quick trip through the museum and the grounds have Indian ruins as well. Not the largest display but interesting none the less. Right on the main road.

We stopped here with our kids (ages 12-17). Cute little museum and great trail through the ruins. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cute gift store with good selection of kids books about Native American history.
