Tuzigoot National Monuments houses an ancient village or pueblo built by a culture known as the Sinagua. Junior Ranger program available.
My family is essentially a posse of National Park groupies and we always try to visit any nearby National Park installations while visiting a destination. While vacationing in Sedona we decided to visit Tuzigoot, partly because there was no way I could pass up visiting a place with the name "Tuzigoot". It is just too fun to say.
We spent about 45 minutes at the National Monument which is essentially Native American ruins.My kids participated in the Junior Ranger program which was great because I think without it, they would have thought I was crazy for taking them to a bunch of broken old stone buildings. Instead, they learned about the people who used to live at Tuzigoot hundreds of years ago, why they chose this particular site to build their village, what they used to build their homes, what they ate, and much more.
Tip: If you are planning on visiting nearby Montezuma's Castle NM as well, let the park ranger know so that you can receive discounted admission on the second park you visit (either Tuzigoot or Montezuma's Castle). Just save your receipt.
Bottom line: I wouldn't make a special trip specifically to Tuzigoot as a vacation destination but if you are heading to Sedona, Prescott, or Flagstaff, I think it is worth the detour. Expect to spend about 30-60 minutes visiting this destination with your kids.
