Founded in 1983, the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is dedicated to understanding, teaching, and helping to preserve the rich history of the ancestral Pueblo people (also called the Anasazi) of the American Southwest. The mission of the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center is to advance knowledge of the human experience through archaeological research, education programs, and collaboration with American Indians. Whether you've signed up for a campus-based archaeology adventure or are taking a day tour, let us help you get the most out of your Crow Canyon experience! Crow Canyon's beautiful 170-acre campus is located in southwestern Colorado, just a few miles from world-renowned Mesa Verde National Park and easily accessible by plane or car.
Definitely glad we stopped! Type the name into Google maps to find. It is not marked correctly on the map or linked to the proper location in road trippers. There is a free 1 hour tour at 10 am on weekdays. Sadly we didn't get there in time. We will be back and possibly do a one week excavation in the near future. This us an educational facility for citizen scientists not a tourist stop. Register and plan ahead. I wish we had.
