I didn't have high expectations and wasn't disappointed. Very shlocky and hokey to the max. Quite a number of displays on the 'Roswell Incident' including statements made 50 years after the event. Attempts a grab of credibility with a few details of some astronauts, but doesn't quite grasp the brass ring. Was an amusing visit, but I wouldn't be going... More

It is a pity with Roswell history, this place could be better, save your time and read about in the web, or better yet see the Rosswell movie with Martin Sheen. Is not worth it. Displays are very poor. Leaves more doubts.

It was all right from a information point of view. I had expected more. Most of the info I already knew about.

This museum isn't going to blow your mind, but as we were just passing through on our way to Texas we felt it was novel and worth the visit. I would not drive across the country just to visit it though. In previous reviews people noted the exhibits are a bit dated, but I think this adds to this museum's... More

Believers and non-believers should be able to visit the museum and look at the many displays without an argument breaking out. Relax and have fun. I have visited the IUFOMRC a few times and it was never crowded, the staff was always friendly and I always got my few dollars worth or entertainment. Some parts may seem "cheesy" but the... More

We pretty much go to the UFO museum each time we come through Roswell - there is always someone with us who hasn't seen it. I find it pretty balanced, they try to present different views, different "evidence", different statements, different theories of what happened - but they don't exclude the non-alien explanations, like the weather balloon theory.

If you have no interest in UFOs not sure how much you will enjoy this but if you like curiosities or are a UFO fan I would recommend stopping.Gives enough info about conflicting opinions that it does make you think about whether UFOs exist and whether a government coverup happened.Lots of reading so not sure how interested young children would...

A very interesting experience, the staff were well informed and explained what had happened and where it had happened. I was very sceptical before I visited the Museum and am still not fully convinced that this landing did take place.

Yeah, it's a little "schmaltzy," I guess you could say, but it does a fair job of representing what we think we know about the Roswell incident. There is a tremendous amount of material gathered in one place. To those familiar with the subject, we have seen these newspaper accounts and headlines dozens of times, but we've seen George Washington's... More

Small museum, as to be expected. Very well laid out with many testimonials from people involved with the Roswell "UFO Incident".
