AAA Editor Notes

Tusayan Ruin and Museum is 22 mi. e. of Grand Canyon Village on a short spur leading off Desert View Dr. The ruin is a U-shaped, prehistoric pueblo inhabited 1185-1225 by two generations of Ancestral Puebloans; it contains about 15 rooms and about 30 people lived there. The Ancestral Puebloans are believed to be the ancestors of the Hopi as well as other Pueblo tribes.</br>The museum traces the development of the Native American culture at the canyon. Exhibits include a painting of the ruin, displays about modern tribes and such Ancestral Puebloan artifacts as pottery, twig figurines and rock drawings.</br>An adjacent .1-mile paved trail runs around the pueblo. A self-guiding brochure is available at the trailhead.</br>Note: Inclement weather may result in winter closures; phone ahead.</br>Guided tours are available.</br>
