We stayed at the nearby RV Park, (which, by the way, was a great overnight stop) so we were able to get to the Meteor Crater when they opened in the morning. We had just driven past on previous trips on I-40, and this trip...More

This is worth the 10 minute drive off of the Interstate. The grounds are very well maintained, the information is very informative, and you get to see a verified crater from a meteor. They give a very generous military discount as well.

Well worth the admission price. Facility is beautiful. Museum very informative. Staff very friendly and well informed. Don't wear your favorite hat as the wind is very strong. Several vantage points offer differing views. Amazing history.

There is a lot of history and geology to be learned at Meteor Crater. The process of how geologists decided this hole was caused by a meteor was interesting.

The people are very nice. We drove way to far to pay $18 per person to see a hole. Winds were high and the tour cold. It was interesting but just over priced.

Commercial buses routinely park there. The lot will accommodate a fleet of RVs and a few space ships.
