Having hears about Roswell for years we satisfied our curiosity and went to the museum. Had a lot of detail of the incident and it was well covered. The exhibits about other UFOs was weak. It looks like the place has not been updated since the 70s. There show no UFO incidents later than the 70s.

For me, this was not worth the stop. Looked like a warehouse museum that had been set up 20 minutes before we walked in. Was kind of dirty and not very put together.

I cannot lie: I love cheeseball roadside attractions like this. It was at once sincere, full-of-wonder, slyly delivering a poke in the ribs, and out-and-out crazy. The exhibits in this converted small-town cinema are delightfully hokey and make for great backdrops to family photos. Dogs, apparently, are welcome and several families going through when we were there gleefully took their... More

It's excellent *if* you're like me and a total *geek* and want to read/and are fascinated with every.single.document.in.there.must.read.it.now. Realize and understand that most of the museum consists of documents and pictures - fascinating ones to read. Wall after wall after wall of them. Well worth the money, and interesting to me, but it's not for everyone. If you're expecting a... More

Like- cute and definitely makes you question your beliefs; fairly decent gift shop but could be much much better dislike- not a destination stop- even though it could be. help staff not very friendly- gift shop mediocre- nothing else to offer. seems like in the past few decades more exhibits could have been added or even expand the gift shop....

I visited the museum in 2000 during my honeymoon and now we're back with our son. Well, it's still a great place to visit. So many stories and theories, photos and movies. The gift shop got bigger. As you walk out, you ask yourself :"Do they exist ?"

Corny? Yes. Quirky? Yes. Kind of have to go just to say you've gone, if you're really a big UFO person this may not ring your bell, but for the average tourist it's kind of a fun stop

This is a fun and educational museum. The admission price is cheap and there are a lot of fun things to look at. You also get access to the research library. The gift shop has a wide variety of souvenirs that are cheap! It is easy to access and a nice place to spend an hour or two.

For $5/person (adult), the museum offered enough to peak our interest throughout. They let us take our dog in which was a nice touch. Lots to look at but not too much that will make you bored.

We've been here twice and this time it was much improved, although always good. Loved all the testimonies and stories from the locals as to what happened in 1947. It really brought the story alive. They also show 3 related movies during the day. Wish we had come early, although the crop circle one we saw in part was very... More
