This place is a must stop if you are in Roswell but be prepared to immersed into lots of articles hung on walls. If you have low vision, this would be a problem. We enjoyed the displays. It is a really weird experience!

SO much information...you can't really absorb it all. Is it real? Is it fake? Is it a conspiracy? Who knows - but oh so interesting. We, unfortunately, couldn't stay long because we had to bet back on the road home - so we missed the movies and some of the other stuff they have to offer. If you like this... More

It's cheesy, a bit dated but if you're in the area it's got to be done. They have some interesting newspaper cuttings in the museum from people who were involved in the incident that make good reading. As someone who still hopes that there is someone out there a good little museum

I loved Roswell! Quirky small town feel in New Mexico. Even the lamp posts are alien shaped.... This little museum is well worth the visit.

The graphical displays are informative and detailed about the famous Roswell UFO incident. However, they loose lots of points for "technical merit". The actual quality of the displays are pretty dated and not up to today's standards.

If you're like me and take everything with a pinch of salt, you could still enjoy this attraction. The staff are lovely and friendly and although the museum itself is pretty basic, there's lots to read, plenty of photographs and even some statues for you to take your own souvenir photograph. We quite enjoyed looking at all the UFO photos... More

What a great bit of Americana. Well put together displays, lots of information. It just had me smiling the whole time I was there. Would I go back? I sure would.

Of course the whole alien thing is everywhere in Roswell. I guess I expected more-mostly reprinted news paper articles. Also thought there might be some of the "scrap material" found. $5 is a little high for what you get.

This is close to ground zero for serious UFOlogists. But is worth a visit even for the mildly curious. Don't expect Disney slickness. This is a labour of love, like so many local museums. The slightly down-at-heal quality adds to the vibe.

And I wanted to like this place, but I couldn't. I had two hours to kill before a flight out, so I stopped by and paid my few dollars to get in. Disappointing. This is a museum dedicated to alien visitation and the alleged crash incident at Roswell in 1947, as well as aliens in general. The Roswell incident consumes... More
