“Worth it to climb down into the kiva”

Coronado Historic Site
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 December 2017

We're from the east coast and know little about the history of this area. The guide was quite knowledgeable and gave us a great overview of the history here. This isn't a huge site, but being able to climb down into the kiva was amazing. And the site's setting on the Rio Grande River makes the walk around it beautiful. You'll get some lovely photos of the mountains in the background.

This pueblo site has a museum with conqistador armor to try on, picnic grounds, Rio Grande access, Native gardens, kiva, tours and activities on occasion like flint knapping. And nice clean bathrooms! Native items gift shop and the most beautiful view of Sandia Mountain. The Festival of cultures had many different vendors, an owl from a raptor rescue, blacksmith, Aztec dancers and western songs with cowboy poetry & food vendors. It was great. Kids 16 & under free.

A very interesting and educational stop. The guides are well versed and are ready to answer all questions (no matter how dumb)! The recreation of the archaeological site is amazing and it is easy to navigate.

The Coronado Historic site is a bit less than meets the eye. The highlight is a docent who delivers an overview of the Pueblos residents inside a restored Kiva including some of the wall paintings discovered when it was unearthed about 1935. Beyond that and a display of about a dozen of these original paintings the site does not need more than an hour or so to cover

An amazing history of the Pueblo people. See the hands on museum, great for all ages. Guide was knowledgable and passionate about the history in this place. Go into a Kiva and experience the art work/meanings of wall drawings. Very cool.
