Fodor's Review

Professionals, students, and any would-be Indiana Joneses come here to learn about ancient relics. Among the more popular offerings of the center's educational programs are weeklong "Archaeology Adventures," which allow visitors to work alongside professional archaeologists as they search for pottery, stone tools, and other artifacts at excavation sites throughout the area, then clean and catalog their finds in the lab. The program includes a special guided tour of Mesa Verde National Park.
