I have linked to a site that has several very high-resolution images of the Cliff Dwellings. I don't think the image that's on there now is bad, but if anyone disagrees, please feel free to crop out a better one from one of the linked panoramas. Slackmaster K 07:40, 13 January 2008 (UTC)

Duplicate articles[edit]

I note that there are two articles on this subject: Manitou Cliff Dwellings and Manitou Cliff Dwellings Museum, which present opposite views of the subject. Shouldn't they be merged? Plazak (talk) 13:51, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Concur on merge. Should this be a museum article or tourst attraction article? Can one see the attraction and not the Museum? or conversely? Is there admission to both, or combined? Example, the Colorado Railroad Museum is also an attraction, admission is for both one can by-pass the indoor museum and go to the outdoor museum and or library and or restorations. I do not know enough of the Dwellings. Other thoughts?? LanceBarber (talk) 18:56, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Official website, from the Museum page, seems to depict the Museum internal to the facility, and admission is for both. Also, " Anasazi Museum, which was established in 1904 and opened to the public in 1906" from the website. LanceBarber (talk) 19:03, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
Will add a museum section to the article and redirect the museum link and talk to this one. LanceBarber (talk) 04:28, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Website tries to say the place is real not fake[edit]

This is how the museum website reads and it really tricks folks into thinking the place itself is the real deal, "The Manitou Cliff Dwellings is a rare historical treasure. Preserved under a protective red sandstone overhang, authentic Anasazi cliff dwellings, built more than 700 years ago, await you here". http://www.cliffdwellingsmuseum.com/24.56.7.232 (talk) 22:00, 24 December 2011 (UTC)

Cited accounts by archaeologists say otherwise. Plazak (talk) 00:12, 25 December 2011 (UTC)
