We got just what we wanted from this museum. We had so much fun. It isn't expensive and it doesn't take long to go through. It is kind of comical but exactly what we expected. If you are in the area - you really need to stop!

I found this to be a very informative museum. There are newspaper articles, official military papers ect depicting the crash of the aliens in area 51. Lots of models and everything. You could actually spend an afternoon here reading all the conspiracy papers ect. Once you leave here, you will really be a believer......

This was worth a visit if you are passing through Roswell. I was hoping for more "proof" and artifacts (as opposed to just recreations), but the kids loved it. It was small enough with enough visuals to keep my two young kids (5 and 2.5) entertained. Roswell is small, and the alien tourist attractions are few, so if you are... More

Lots of historical information, a lot of printed material and reading. Interesting movie. We watched the very end of one then the next and found it was not the same one, decided not to take time for the other one. It was a fun way to spend a couple hours and get some fun photos. My husband loved getting a... More

Where to begin. It's a private museum so it costs $5. But we couldn't not go. Can't image I'd go again outside of gunpoint. Lots of "evidence" and even more "we know it ain't real so here's evidence that it's not real". But you still have to go if you're in town.

My husband, my 12 yrs old son, my in-laws that came from GA and myself went out to Roswell as a family outing. The museum is not modern at all!! It centralizes into that one incident in 1947. My son loved it, he is very into aliens and all that space stuff. It is a lot of reading and very... More

This is a walking historical tour. It's not fancy. The staff is very nice and helpful. The information is laid out well. Take your time to read it all!

Lots of articles to read and a few examples of what aliens might look like. Nice gift shop that should open to the public NOT just the people going through the museum.

Well this is really the only alien visitation information in Roswell. With the TV show, movies, even an episode of the TV show Bones, I really expected Roswell to have more. OK, so some of the hotels have alien figures and there are a number of stores where you can by t-shirts but is that all there is? That said,... More

I guess we had to visit this attraction, otherwise nobody would have believed we've been to Roswell. It has a lot of variety in information, but I feel that after knowing all that I got even more questions than before. The "show" (lights and smog) came up only once, so we were not sure how often it happens, but it... More
