This is a fun and educational museum. The admission price is cheap and there are a lot of fun things to look at. You also get access to the research library. The gift shop has a wide variety of souvenirs that are cheap! It is easy to access and a nice place to spend an hour or two.

For $5/person (adult), the museum offered enough to peak our interest throughout. They let us take our dog in which was a nice touch. Lots to look at but not too much that will make you bored.

We've been here twice and this time it was much improved, although always good. Loved all the testimonies and stories from the locals as to what happened in 1947. It really brought the story alive. They also show 3 related movies during the day. Wish we had come early, although the crop circle one we saw in part was very... More

Entering ,what looks to be an older movie theatre, wondering whether we'd believe in the incidents of 1947, or not. There is a lot of documentation to read over, many pictures, and artifacts. The best part for us, I believe, was the movie and comfortable chairs. Well worth the expense and time.

Was looking for more. Set up was okay, but looking for more information to carry with me. Hours were to short.

Interesting place to see newspaper articles about the "crash" and memorabilia. Some great photo opportunities. It's worth the price and the time. When in Roswell, go to the Int'l UFO Museum.

We really enjoyed the UFO Museum as we had an 8-year old with us. Fair warning, this museum requires lots of reading and time if you really want to understand what it's all about. Besides that, there are some neat and fun and silly props and photo ops. They also had a nice gift shop, although you can buy most... More

This is really the place to go if you want to find out about what happened in Roswell. There's plenty of evidence (?) to turn the worst non-believer into a believer. Much of the information is authentic and fun to read or look at. The big problem is that there's very little interaction built in and that there is an... More

Loved, loved, loved. This was one from my bucket list. Staff friendly. So much information to read and see. Videos were fun to watch. Enjoyed our meeting of the aliens. Gift shop has some cute shirts.
