Tusayan Ruin and Museum
Tusayan Ruin and Museum Review
Completed in 1932, this museum offers a quick orientation to the lifestyles of the prehistoric and modern Indian populations associated with the Grand Canyon and the Colorado Plateau. Adjacent, an excavation of an 800-year-old dwelling gives a glimpse of the lives of some of the area's earliest residents. Of special interest are split-twig figurines dating back 2,000 to 4,000 years ago, a replica of a 10,000-year-old spear point, and other artifacts left behind by ancient cultures. Twice daily, a ranger leads an interpretive tour of the Ancestral Puebloan village along a 0.1-mile, paved loop trail.
