Where are we going today?

Located in Northern Arizona, a visit to the Meteor Crater Visitor Center provides you with an enjoyable educational experience in well maintained, modern facilities, which are kept spotlessly clean. The Discovery Center includes displays on the never-ending process of impacts and collisions in our solar system. The Meteor Crater Interactive Learning Center includes twenty-four exciting exhibits, making it the most extensive and informative museum of its type on planet earth. Also included in the Learning Center are two interactive computer displays that contain information and high-tech graphics on space, meteorites and asteroids, the solar system, and the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet that impacted Jupiter. Weather permitting there is a guided rim tour that takes you for 1/2 mile hike as well as 3 observations areas right on the rim of the crater.

    Was absolutely awesome. They have a cool museum and a computer simulator where you create your own meteor from size, material down to angle it strikes the Earth. Gives you results from dissolved in the Atmosphere on up to total destruction. Pretty cool, and honestly worth the $18 all and all.

    Had a great time here in the summer, found by chance on the map and made a detour. The price of tickets isn't that cheap but where else can you see a crater such as this. The museum is good and explains the history and geology well. Totally understand why you can't walk through the crater, it would be damaged . You can go on a tour along the rim so can experience the view (and heat)

    This was worth the wait! You cannot miss the signs that point this direction on I-40 in Arizona. After the 6 mile drive, you arrive to this observatory with plenty of large vehicle parking. The views were awesome as you took memory pictures of history of a meteor landing of over 50,000 years ago. Gladly, they preserved the crater for us to be part of this sight. It's worth the money and time if you are a person after adventure and education.

    Don't pay attention to these negative reviews if you have any interest at all in astronomy or immense natural landmarks that will blow your mind when seen with your own 2 eyes. Yes its true, you can't walk down into the crater. But the mini tour is awesome, the museum is new and high quality, and the gift shop has lots of cool stuff. I'd been wanting to see this thing since i was a little kid - I was not disappointed in the least.

    Save your money at 18 buckaroos per person it's a true RIP-OFF! ! ! ! and as others have said you can't even go in it. They even have a sign saying you are not allowed to take pictures of it from above in a plane something ain't right about this place. Drive around it Pick-up a few rocks. go home and watch tv it's about what you will get out of this
