You can walk right up to the rim of Meteor Crater & Barringer Space Museum, thought to be one of the best-preserved meteorite craters on the planet. The crater is privately owned by the Barringer family, the descendants of the scientist who was first to suggest that the crater was due to a meteor. The visitor center displays pieces of the meteorite recovered from the floor of the crater and tells the history surrounding the site. Learn about Daniel Barringer and the journey that led to the crater's discovery, then trek the paved walkway to its viewing point. Bring sunscreen; there is no natural shade along the walkway. Plan a trip to Winslow easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • We had a wonderful time at Meteor Crater. It's a little pricey but having a military discount helped defray the cost. The exhibit is very large and well done. There are two theatres showing different aspects of the crater. The movies were very enjoyable and quite entertaining. There are plenty of hands-on displays depicting how the crater was formed. We purchased lunch at the Blasted Bistro. The sandwiches were very large and came with your choice of chips. Both of our sandwiches were excellent. We took the guided tour of the crater. Michael was our guide. He was not only very informative but was also very funny and entertaining. The walk is about a mile long round trip. I was the oldest of the group and the slowest. He would stop the group until I could catch up. He was thoughtful and considerate so Michael...a huge THANK YOU!
  • Great landmark to stop and see for a few hours. The crater is really neat to see up close. Definitely feel very small standing next to it. They have plenty of information and short films to explain the history and the meteor hit. The staff were all kind and courteous as well. Nature has places where man seems small. One of the most known craters. Highly advising to visit as it teaches about Mother Nature and her artifacts.
