This place had been on our list for years. While we weren't disappointed, it wasn't much more than framed documents you would need quite a while to read and some displays of so-called artifacts. There is a "life-sized" alien display complete with whirling flying saucer and dry ice smoke. You can't leave without going through the gift shop, but there... More

It is 5 dollars to get in and I feel that it was right for the money I paid. It took about 30 minutes to tour through.

There were a few life sized displays but most of the UFO museum is made up of news paper articles, typed accounts of stories and pictures of the people who originally told the stories.

"In July 1947, something happened northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, during a severe thunderstorm…." What can you say about a place that has a ton of historic files and artifacts, testimonials, memorabilia and just the right amount of conspiracy theory on the alleged '47 UFO crash outside of Roswell, NM but "What fun!" And it wouldn't be the first government... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in Roswell for a day during our cross country road trip, and we just had to go here! I love all things alien/UFO and this was very entertaining. We enjoyed reading all the information provided and the alien automatons were cheesy, but fun! If you get there early in the morning, there is less of... More

You know going into this its going to be the same information most of us have heard most of our lives. It was neatly displayed, and some neat alien displays. We had fun, and learned a few things we did not know.
