Group Information

Thank you for your interest in bringing your tour group to Meteor Crater.

The Interactive Discovery Center is one of the first of its kind, housing displays containing information about meteorites, asteroids, impact cratering mechanics,  and the formation of Meteor Crater.  There is a big screen theater with surround sound showing “Impact, The mystery of Meteor Crater”, interactive computer displays, a new display on the Shoemaker-Levy 9 comet and the Astronaut Wall of Fame.  There are three different lookout points to view the crater.  Tour Guides should try to allow 1 1/2 hours to go through the Discovery Center and lookouts and additional time for our guided rim trail tour, which will take an additional 45 minutes to an hour.
