Owner description: Built on the top of a hill, these are the ruins of a village from 1100 A.D. that once consisted of approximately 110 rooms.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

Restored dwelling of ancient people, pathways paved and well maintained. If you have someone in a wheelchair the path is smooth but has a steep uphill start.
Although there isn’t much to see besides the foundation walls of this huge 100 room dwelling you can look down and imagine that this place provided a secure location.
The museum is small, as is the gift shop but a nice touch is that there are picnic tables set up around the museum office if you bring a lunch or simply want to relax.

It's fairly pricey for he fact that there really is little to see except to walk through the structures. The small museum is very interesting. A true monument to the amazing structures that the early nomadic tribes built throughout the southwest. Beautiful views of the area from the top.

Small visitor center was informative. Would be nice to have overview film like other NPS center. Nice short walk on paved path to ruins. Additional trail to see the marsh. Good spot to stop for an hour to hour and half. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This was a very nice historical type of dwelling used by Native Americans from this area. Being able to see how things were built and potentially how people lived was very interesting. Worth stopping for a view.

Tuzigoot is a hilltop pueblo constructed by the Sinagua peoples many hundreds of years ago. The site includes an excellent indoor display of artifacts and stories of a way of life. The site was partially reconstructed in the 1930’s and visitors are able to walk through the reconstructed pueblo. If one looks carefully, there is evidence of many more rooms along the sides of the hill that have not been restored to get a better sense of the shear size of the place. It must have been a truly impressive sight, the city in the middle of the desert when it was fully inhabited. A visit here complements visits to Palatki and Honanki sites.

Access is by paved road and there is ample parking. There is a $10 per person admission fee which allows return visits for up to a week and also allows access to Montezuma Castle within the same week.
