We stopped in while on vacation. My kids where excited and we took the time to tour the whole museum. We had not planned on stopping-but where so glad that we did. Not overly busy, so many interesting displays.

The history of the UFO sighting and the conspiracy theories are all detailed within the museum. The displays are merely newspaper articles and copy paper articles framed and put on the wall. It was ok. My husband loves this kind of stuff so he can say he has been there, done that. It isn't really anything to write home about.

The museum was mostly reading about the people who experienced the event and the government attempt to cover it up as a crashed balloon. They need more interactive facilities. The reseach center was small and mostly devoted to films.

Didn't really know what to expect to see. Maybe my expectations were a bit too high. But it's an old theatre that's been stripped of the seats and big screen and had a bunch of cheesy UFO stuff added. I didn't think it was all that great. It was average, at best.

This is a well layed out museum and has a lot of information regarding the question of UFO landings in Roswell. Another positive is the museum is dog-friendly.

Yes it's a little campy. But that's what we were going for. The spinning space ship was fun, and the gift shop had affordable stuff. They had a photo booth, which for us is a blast. Not too expensive, worth a stop.

Well laid out and presented for the materials surrounding the infamous 1940's crash near Corona (North of Roswell). The materials let the visitor draw their own conclusions on the event. Nice to see all the historical materials that surrounded this event in one place.

I visited all the surrounding stores - best price was here. I was with my young son and he seemed to like this "gift shop" the best
