Just a very interesting place to get to see the crater and also learn a bit about space. Enjoyed the museum and would recommend going early or later in the day - very hot during the day.
This place pales in comparison to Meteor Crater in Arizona, but it's a good solid second-place for meteorite museums, and very accessible if you're going along I-20 between Midland/Odessa and Carlsbad Caverns or El Paso. The crater itself is underwhelming - only 60 yards across and very shallow - but there are explanatory signs along the little trail around it.... 更多
If you're planning to see the impact of a meteor from long ago, this is the place to come. Even though the impact has been filled in through tye years, the astronomical indentation is still clear and the magnitude of the impact evident. Just a cool thing to see that is literally in the backyard of West Texas.
The visitor center was filled with plenty of information on meteors. The attendants of the museum were friendly and helpful. The crater was interesting to see. The pathways were clear and the information signs were good to read along the way. If you have a few minutes and would like to stretch your legs for a bit, it's not a... 更多
This is an interesting stop, especially if you like history, astronomy, or the unusual. The historical marker proclaims it to be the second largest crater in the United States. However it does not compare with Meteor Crater in Arizona. Over the eons it has filled in from over 100' deep to about 5-7' deep now. Only 2 miles south of... 更多
While in Midland we visited the meteor crater. It had rained a couple days before, and the paths were off limits, but we were still able to see the crater and the person at the museum answered all our questions.
Visitor Center is interesting with displays of meteor pieces and information; however, crater is mostly filled in with blowing sand. There is a walkway around crater and the surroundings are pleasant.
Not what I was expecting, but definitely interesting. This is a very small museum with little to see inside, but the little was neat. I found the crater outside was worth the visit. Stay on the trail to avoid the West Texas rattle snakes. This stop will not take much of your time at all.
The meteor site is overgrown and there is very little to see here. The museum is small with a few exhibits. Disappointing as it was a long drive out of our way to go here.
