I Believe

The admission is $5 so I feel it is worth that to read all of the articles on the walls. I really do believe that it was a major coverup after my visit there. We tend to read a... read more

This folksy museum is loaded with artifacts from the original "Roswell incident"--newspaper reports, fragments from the crash site and videos of eyewitnesses. You will leave this place either believing in UFO's or that a major government cover-up occurred. Lots of great UFO gifts are available for purchase.

It all looked very tired, with most of the displays being articles & information to read on the walls. Not so interesting for children. The movie selection only had one choice actually relating to the Roswell incident. So, if you missed that showing in the morning, you only had unrelated full length movies. It would be much improved by showing... More

When in Roswell... The museum is pretty much a scrapbook printed out and put on the wall. You'd get more with Google and an iPad. Skip this and do Dennis Balthaser's UFO tour!

Pictures of UFO sightings, lots of news articles and general info, and a chance to take your photo with a fake alien.

We came to Roswell because my son is very interested in all things paranormal. So, the museum was a must for us. With admission only $5 for adults, I strongly recommend a visit. Most of the exhibits are framed documents and photos on the wall and my son was disappointed that there were not more interactive exhibits. There is a... More

I liked the art and displays. There was a lot of reading required to understand the timeline. The photo booth was frustrating I wanted a photo strip of four different photos and all I could get was one postcard photo. I tried twice and it was a waste of money!

This campy tourist attraction is more like going to a science fair than an actual museum, though it does have some interesting information and articles and the kids liked it. Not anything you really ever want to come back to a second time.

I don't subscribe to aliens or conspiracy theories, but that doesn't stop me from having a good time. It was fun to read all of the reports and look at the replicas/artist renditions of "evidence". Bought a Roswell themed baseball from their gift shop for my kid. Tip: They are not kidding when they warn you not to loose the... More
