We left Flagstaff to drive to Santa Fe, and this was a great stop. Very interesting place with a highly knowledgeable staff. A bit expensive for a large family, but my elementary school aged kids really enjoyed the Meteor Crater.

I feel this place should be a National Monument. If this were the case those with National Park senior card wouldn't have to pay the bit too high entrance fee. It is on private property and the owners have done a nice job. I have...More

This is an amazing meteor impact crater caused by an iron meteor 160’ across crashing into the earth 50,000 years ago. It was staked by a miner whose family now own the crater. They are upgrading the visitor center. Information about meteors overplays a bit...More

Amazing! The 6-mile drive up to it is right through the middle of high desert with warnings to watch out for cows crossing. Once you reach it, the buildings were constructed along the "lip" of the crater. It is super windy especially when you walk...More

Many have down-rated this because it's pricey--$18 when we visited--and it's privately owned (well it is what it is and that's part of its amazing history) and it's not at all pet-friendly (which would be a deal-breaker for many, of course). But we were stunned...More

We stopped here after visiting Winslow and headed back to Tucson. It was well worth the trip just to see something so spectacular.

Yes, you can do this on your own and in 30 minutes. Suggest you skip the museum and go directly to the viewing platforms outside.
