Ever wonder what a real dig looks like. I went to the Coronado Historic site and found they are going small digs around the site to fill in some questions until the end of June. Youi can stop at them and they will explain what is going on. It is really interesting. If you go, take a Docent tour -... More

We have always enjoyed learning about the peoples who inhabited the Americas before the Europeans arrived. This site, overlooking the Rio Grande, transcends the ordinary collection of sites, digs, and artifacts in that it has been so carefully preserved and in cases, recreated, that your appreciation of the inhabitants of the area, and in turn, the peoples of all the...

The interpretive center was relatively small (not a huge museum) but it was packed with interesting info and many hands-on exhibits. Archaeologists were on site cataloging artifacts, and it was interesting to watch them work. The walk around the (reconstructed) ruins was easy and informative. This must have been a beautiful place to live, with the river flowing by and... More

The historic site lies beautyfully right of the bank of the Rio Grande. The guided tour was very interesting and informative. You will learn a lot. A place worth to visit.

The Coronado Historic Site is worth a small detour and/or a stop while in the area. It is located in a nice area overlooking the Rio Grande river and the 'Sandia' Mountains (spelling??) However, there is not all that much to see. Some restored ruins are about it. A guided tour is probably giving more information about the site, which... More

Coronado offers a small visitor centre with information panels, artifacts and cave paintings. Outside, there is a Kiva, of which the inside is accessible via a guided tour. There are also some restored ruins, which are four feet tall mud brick walls that attempts to show the configuration of the pueblo rooms. This setting is nice and offers a view... More

I've lived just a few miles from this site for over two years and have passed by it many times but never stopped until we were trying to find some nearby things to do with some friends visiting from CT. They have two children 11 and 8 and they both loved this place. Our docent, Brian, was really good at... More

The site is conveniently located about 2 miles west of I25. The museum and gift shop are right across from the parking lot. A paid tour is only $5 for adults and free for kids and well worth it. The path through the ruins is paved and the entire circuit is only about 1/2 mile, though there are a few... More

We only stopped at this site because it was next to the Coronado Campground. I really didn't expect much. I was really off-base. This was a very interesting historic area. One docent gave us a fantastic tour of the original murals. After that another docent gave us a tour of the outside area and structures. Both docents took the time... More
