Aztec Ruins National Monument and 400 more national parks across the country will waive entrance fees throughout the weekend of Feb. 15 through 17 in recognition of Presidents Day.

“National parks are well-known for scenic beauty and outdoor recreation but they are also fantastic places to learn about the people and events that have shaped our nation,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis.

National park passes that provide free or discounted admission year-round are available for qualifying active duty military members and their dependents, senior citizens and people with permanent disabilities.

Stop by Aztec Ruins to appreciate and honor the culture and history in your own back yard. The park is currently open seven days a week, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
