How many places on earth can you see such a sight? I passed this too many times on other trips, so this time we made time and glad we did. It's family friendly. The tour was cancelled due to rain the day we visited, but I'd recommend that if you can, as a self-guided tour of the outside has no real helpful signs/audio. Wish they'd extend the walkway to the bottom.

In fact they had to close down the tour around the edge because of high winds. The tour guide gave a very decent talk about the place and the "interactive" museum gave all of us including the adults things to play with and items to look at that were quite interesting. It is a bit overpriced at $18/adult. I'd venture to say that it was worth about $10 - $12. It is a "private" non gov't place.

A friend I did a test visit to the Meteor Crater to find out if it was worthy of bringing AZ guests to see. We thought it might be a bit "cheesy"! It was anything but! The facility itself is new & clean & offers accommodation for people with mobility problems. The day we visited was quite windy so guided walking tours for the day were canceled. We were, however, able to avail ourselves of trails & a viewing platform with telescopes allowing us to see many historical spots within the crater. In addition to the introductory brief movie about the formation of the crater, there were several informative displays in an adjacent museum. A few interactive displays included that would interest some older children. This attraction would probably be appropriate for kids above age 8. The gift shop was adequate as was the food option--Subway (only). The site is somewhat remote & isolated so you might want to eat before making the visit. There is gas available fairly nearby too. I would recommend getting off the beaten path to visit this attraction. I did not feel the senior admission fee of $16 was too high.

Stopped by to see the property as we were in the area. It's a good idea to have a little bit of time to take a look at this.

Stopped here on our Route 66 trip. Amazing to see a huge hole caused by a crater. Informative museum and movie also.

While getting our kicks and finding the must sees along this section of RT 66 we visited Meteor Crater. The crater is a few miles off the main drag. A theater with short film and small museum are onsite as well as a gift shop. Thunderstorms were threatening so we didn't view much from the lookout points.

I found the $18/person entrance fee a bit steep for what is actually at this attraction.

If this is not too far off your travels , HIGHLY recommend stopping. It is an impressive , real , planet earth vs. meteor ! No re-creation here , the REAL DEAL. Good exhibits inside and educational. Plan on spending 1 hour. We used our AAA card for admission discount.

We made a last minute decision to see the Meteor Crater and are so happy that we did! The history and significance of the crater is fascinating. The visitor center and exhibits were very well done and interesting. The crater itself is mind-boggling. The cost of entry was $18 per person which seemed high until we realized that the site is a private enterprise. The exhibits and vistas of the crater were well-worth the cost. Like so many other reviewers have said - See it, Don't Skip it!

My family stopped to see the Meteor Crater on our return home. We drove in to the site, which is not too far off the highway. It really is a site to behold. Bring a pair of binoculars because you may want to look at other spots in the crater. We went in September and it was nice weather. Be prepared to walk up and down paths with hand rails an steps.
There is an elevator to the site, but once outdoors walking paths with steps. Inside they have an self guided walking tour.

The staff was friendly and helpful. They are working on the facility at this time, and some areas were not available.
