Building a Museum....
INTERPRETIVE CENTER is now a MUSEUM...
We used to call it the Interpretive Center (or the "IC")...
Our MUSEUM is located just off the trail. It is open on weekends, May through October, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, and by appointment. Museum "Open/Closed" signs are located at the trail head and on the section of trail near the museum. Call the Sandia District Ranger Station at 505.281.3304 on weekdays between 8:30 am and 4:30pm for information and appointments.
The quarter-mile interpretive trail is ALWAYS open and features many signs detailing history and features of the site.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< The Friends of Tijeras Pueblo completed the permanent building that is now the Museum. It is located at the top of the trail that winds through the prehistoric Tijeras Pueblo archaeological site located in Tijeras, New Mexico. The building is nearly 1800 square feet in size, and features six learning stations that focus on the 14th-15th century occupations of the pueblo site. Since its beginning, exhibits were planned to evolve as both permanent and temporary.
In latter part of the 2014 season, Dr. Marc Thompson accepted the role of Director. Under his guidance and with the help of volunteers, exhibits continue to develop and grow. Earlier funding from a federal scenic by-ways grant ( New Mexico Department of Transportation, Office of Tourism) provided the foundation of the learning stations and exhibits with focus on the theme of "Living with the Land."
