See a 50,000-year-old meteor crater in the Arizona Desert.

Get ready for a one-of-a-kind Space Adventure at Meteor Crater and Barringer Space Museum in Winslow, Arizona. Fifty thousand years ago, a meteor measuring 150 feet wide and weighing 300,000 tons, and traveling 26,000 miles an hour, collided with the Earth, leaving a crater 550 feet deep and almost a mile wide.  Visit and learn about the unique, massive crater from indoor and outdoor viewing decks, lookout points, and a guided rim tour.

Along with the crater, visitors can go inside the Barringer Discovery Center and Space Museum. This contemporary and informative museum provides relief from the desert heat while you discover the history of the crater and learn other fascinating facts about the cosmos around us. Along with many various educational space exhibits, the museum provides an informational video, “Impact! The Mystery of Meteor Crater,” detailing the crater's history. The museum also includes an immersive 4D theater, allowing the audience to jump into the movie. 

Peruse the gift and mineral shop and find that perfect souvenir for you and your friends. Don’t miss the Apollo 11 training command module. Before the first astronauts walked on the moon, they trained at Meteor Crater because of its similarity to the moon’s surface. Meteor Crater RV Park provides the best location and amenities for your Meteor Crater experience if you need a place to stay.
