We were staying in Flagstaff and decided to visit this place. We were enthralled with the size of the crater. Many telescopes were placed at the lookout points for viewing pleasure. The museum was filled with fascinating information about meteors and craters around the earth....More

Took a road trip December 2017 and must say this was a highly recommended location when traveling in/near I-40 in Arizona...and must say that it was such an amazing site. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and the sight itself is such grandiose. Must see!

Amazing site, very informative staff and museum. Guided tours available on the hour, and short movie. Gift shop full of minerals and gems, some for purchase, all to gawk at.

We drove off to interstate to have a look. Realizing a meteorite would just leave a big hole we didn’t expect to pay $18x4 to have a look. Recommend unless you really have to take a pass. Save the money and look at the pictures...More

The crater and the museum attached to it make a very interesting and informative side trip just a few minutes off of I-40. We were returned from Flagstaff after a trip to the Grand Canyon and decided to stop in. As a bonus there is...More

When we arrived at the visitor center we were greeted by an employee who promptly pointed out the admission fees. $18 for an adult $16 for a senior citizen. We promptly took a pass.

Commercial buses routinely park there. The lot will accommodate a fleet of RVs and a few space ships.

You can just rock up, pay $18 each, walk up some stairs and voila. So, yes, you could see it in 30 mins.
