Private Archaeology Tours

The mission of archaeology is to educate the public about the people and technology of the past, but also to Protect sites so that responsible visitors will be able to enjoy them for generations to come. With thousands of sites throughout the region, it takes an army of volunteers to help monitor and protect the most endangered ones.  Interested?  Sign up and train here at Salmon Ruins!

Closed! For your safety and ours, the SITE, MUSEUM, and all GROUNDS are CLOSED until August 31!

The four-corners region of the American Southwest contains thousands of archaeological and natural wonders hidden within millions of square miles of public land.  Fortunately our tour guides are professional archaeologists with extensive knowledge and experience in the area.  All tours are a full day, and are limited to six people maximum.  Email or call the museum to book your excursion.    

You bring the adventurous spirit,
we'll supply the archaeology!
