This is a fascinating though pricey attraction. As of 9/9/23, the price was $27 per adult and $25 per senior over 60. I remember seeing this place on TV in the seventies as a kid when the Apollo moon missions were happening. They used the crater to help train the astronauts since it was similar to the craters on the moon. Very cool!

I'm not sure we would have gone to Meteor Crater if it weren't for the Military discount: for 5 of us it cost us $68. Current price is $22/adult (6/7/21). It was kind of interesting; unfortunately the tour guide was full of jokes that were worse than dad jokes, and it only takes you around the rim on a small asphalt path. If you are into astronomy, geology....this is right up your alley.

Totally worth a stop, and the fee! Make sure to not bring pets, as they are not allowed inside. Don't believe the naysayers...this was literally created by space and its amazing! Barringer rules. [Cathy, 06/22/2019]

I beg to differ with many of the posts, and don't recommend you go out of your way to see the crater. First, it's almost 45 minutes from downtown Winslow. Second, it's $18 per person, and I was ready to leave only minutes after arriving. I love fun and quirky sites, but this one felt like a rip-off.
