Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village let visitors experience pioneer life in the American West. Aztec's history of human habitation goes back a thousand years, when Native Americans settled along the Animas River. Pioneer Village gives visitors the opportunity to revisit a community of the early American West. Children will enjoy climbing aboard the caboose and going in a one-room schoolhouse, just two of the many Pioneer Village buildings and exhibits. Visit Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village to learn about modern Aztec's early days.

Visited here by chance after seeing Aztec ruins. Very friendly and helpful staff. The recreation of the pioneer village was very interesting. We spent much longer here than anticipated. Highly recommended.
