Create an itinerary including Meteor Crater & Barringer Space Museum
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 fulfilled one of my nerdy husband's lifelong goals when we visited the Meteor Crater last week. We were impressed by the movie they showed us before we saw the crater, as well as the museum...

  • Awesome place to visit! The museum is small but fun, the theater plays a short video describing the site history, but the true gem is the crater itself. The scale here must be seen and experienced. It's outstanding! And since you'll be out standing on a tall outcrop, bring a jacket. The views are photo worthy, but the wind can dampen the experience if you're not prepared.
  • Amazing place!! Very educational as well inside the museum area. The outdoor gives you a wow factor and tell you the power of nature. Great for families and friends. Gift shop is a bit price like Disney pricey but overall is ok.
