A little hokey and there was nothing really interesting. Not worth the admission price and we spent only 30 minutes there.

I can't give this museum three stars because that is described as "average," and Roswell with it's Americana glory and quirky conspiracy is far from average - so four stars it is! The museum is small and could be done in an hour, unless you want to stay for a movie screening (then allow time for an 1.5 hour film,... More

don't expect the flashy gee whiz stuff like Disney. This is mostly letters, reports, etc. about the crash landing. It is kitschy but fun. We just spent one day in Roswell on the way to Carlsbad which was WAY more than enough time.

I'm not sure what I am more bummed about.....the $5 admission, or the time visiting. I will never get back either. We went out of our way to see this instead of Walter White's house in Albuquerque.

A lot of reading at one time but I did the best I could and did enjoy myself! Some of the displays were a little cheesy. Maybe if a movie set designer could fix them up a little. I felt like they just needed to use that space. The reading information I could get through was VERY INTERESTING. I did... More

This was bigger than I thought it would be, and had lots of information. They present the evidence for and against, and have a lot of other information as well. I mention that it's pet friendly because people do being their fur babies in; during our visit one lady had a rather disgruntled cat on a lead. Worth a visit,... More

In planning our road trip west, the wife and I decided that Roswell was a "must-visit" town. For years my mind thought of Roswell as a small, dusty town in the middle of nowhere where something strange dropped from the sky at one time. What a misconception! Roswell is a city. It boasts, in addition to the UFO Museum and... More

Very old fashion, poor and small museum. Our Children aged 10 & 12 were extremely disappointed. I cannot recommend this place nor the City of Roswell. Better pass your way. Sorry.

if you visit roswell, you have to make time to stop and at least walk through this place. some people(alot) really are convinced something happened out here, and I think that not all of them can be crazy.

Went on a day trip to Roswell and this was at the top of the to-do list. Such a disappointment. This "museum" was nothing but newspaper clippings and photos pinned to a wall. Seems like this place hasn't been updated since 1975. Gift shop was sparse and had old dusty items to choose from. Overall this place was a disappointment... More
