Much of the original structure has been redone. The admission was a little steep for no more than you actually get to see, but it is interesting to see the history of early man and how they lived in this region.

Can you imagine the workmanship and skill it took to build this into this wall of stone? I don't see anyone attempting anything like it today! We marvel and ogle about carving carving faces into stone, let alone a home for multiple families. This place is beautiful, set high above a flood-prone river below, and very difficult for enemies to... More

Worthy of a short visit. Walking the trail and seeing the cliff dwellings is at most 30 minutes. Easy access from I17.

Very cool thing to see but you can't tour it -- just literally look up and view it. There are some helpful guides to let you know a bit about the history.

The Monument was a great, quick stop full of history of the Native Americans. It's amazing to see what they were able to do with the means of the day. If you have the time, be sure to stop!

Just off the road to Sedona is this historical monument. A well maintained interesting view of a feat of ancient ingenuity. A real insight into Americas early beginnings.

My family of 4 (kids ages 4 and 8) enjoyed a quick stop on our way to Sedona at Montezuma Castle. We enjoyed talking to the Ranger that was posted outside. He answered a few of our questions. Our kids were able to get a junior ranger badge while we were there too. There was no movie in the Visitor... More

Pretty AMAZING site built almost 1000 years ago! Very nice interpretive trail through the Monument area and the Ranger staff is VERY knowledgeable. Well worth a visit. PLUS make sure you stop just up I-17 at Montezuma Well. Don't let the name fool you it is WELL worth a visit also.
