A great place to learn about meteorites and their history. I would plan on a one to two hour visit. There is a Subway restaurant there if you would like to enjoy lunch.

Jeff made our 30 minute tour very informative. An easy walk out to the crater will amaze you. Walkouts are easy to access and worth visiting. A bit pricey but super cool!

It is a hole in the ground. They don't let you in the crater and there is not much to see. Little over priced for the experience.

I have never been to a crater. For the first time I had a great experience. A place for RVs. I hope to come back in the near future.

The Meteor Crater is indeed a traveler's destination with a high level of attraction. The museum offers a lot of ideas of astrology. $18 per person is too much though. Friends and I stayed there for maybe an hour and that has been too much...More

I did not see any wheelchairs for rental and not to sure about accessibility. The tour can not be done with a wheelchair as it goes out along the rim and is a dirt patch only.
