Kinda boring and unimpressive. Like the photo shows, they are just "stumps" of former walls. If you got nothing better to do, then go visit it. I recommend you find something better to do.

These ruins, and the museum, are definitely worth a visit. Admission is free to 'pensioners'. It is just amazing to think how these primitive peoples were so advanced! The way they brought in water, the houses, the ball courts. To think that so much has...More

Paquimé is unique and it is well worth the trip from anywhere in Mexico. For me, I made this trip from Chiapas and I was absolutely delighted that I made it to the most curious archaeological site in Mexico. Allow a couple hours to immerse...More

I visited Paquime in late March and was absolutely delighted. The facility features a thoughtfully unobtrusive visitor center and museum which includes a wide array of materials that provide insight into the evolution of the civilization there about 1,000 years ago, and about its economy...More

I just received a call from a lady in Northern California asking me for a phone number to Paquime Archeological Museum. Her name is Lori Sexton at 415-526-3347. She apparently purchased some Mata Ortiz pottery there. Now sure why she called me except I'm a partner with Galeria de Ollas in Puerto Vallarta and we only sell Mata Ortiz Art. If there is a phone number, would you please provide it. My phone is 770-598-3332.

Alguien me podría decir cuánto tiempo aproximado en carro se hace de Monterrey a Paquimé, y en caso de tomar un avión a qué ciudad debería llegar el vuelo?
