Meteor Crater

Today we went exploring the worlds best preserved meteor crater.

Being nerds for science we were very much looking forward to this.

It’s definitely worth stopping by to see once. However, we thought there would be more to do. A half day or less is enough time for most people.

That said, even though the attraction is privately owned (not a state or national park), the owners did a good job with the discovery center and museum.

Almost all of the exhibits were interactive. My kids really liked this part.

Plus the crater itself was pretty cool.

Those dots in the top right are people…yes the crater is massive.

So, yes, stop in if you are on Route 66, but don’t plan on staying for more than a half day as there isn’t much to do.

Our regret was dedicating an entire day. We should have planned something else to go with it.
