Odessa Meteor Crater and Museum
Approximately ten miles west of Odessa via Interstate 20, exit 108.
Enjoy a free, self-guided tour of this Registered Natural Landmark located ten miles southwest of Odessa in Ector County. One of the largest known craters in the nation, the Odessa Meteor Crater is 550 feet wide and was once 100 feet deep (although natural sediment has since filled the crater substantially over time). While on site, also visit the Thomas Rodman Museum and Visitor Center which features pieces of the actual meteorite on display.
