Nice set up museum. Very interesting useful information. The ruins are very nice and you get a good self-guided guide.

Great historical site! Lots to learn. 45 mins to walk through the museum, and about 2 hours to go through all of the visitable places in the ruins and other areas. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Amazing place! If you have any interest in the Chacoan architecture or artifacts, this is the place to see them. Much bigger than I thought it would be & the museum is very well done. We will go back, probably several times! Low cost & high value!

About us

Salmon Ruins is an Ancestral Puebloan (Anasazi) site built by architects from the Chaco culture in 1088.  The village was occupied until 1288 and had up to 300 inhabitants.  Excavations went on from 1971-1978, revealing unique architecture and artifacts now available for study.  In addition to exploring the site, you can also visit the homestead built by the Salmon family who protected the site for many years, a series of replica habitations representing groups who are important to the region but who never lived on the grounds, and museum displays indoors to help you understand it all.  
Entrance to the grounds is permitted through the museum ONLY.  The grounds are closed when the museum is closed.
Adults $4/Seniors $3/Kids 15&under $1.
