I thought the visit was kitschy, but fun. My teenagers had a great time. Definitely worth seeing if you are in the area.

If you are seeking artifacts, you probably won't be satisfied. If you want to read a comprehensive compilation of articles and photos of The Roswell Incident, you won't be disappointed. Present on the 4th of July weekend were many authors of books written about the Roswell Incident, as well as other UFO sightings. I loved the gift shop...lots of fun... More

This museum was loaded with articles and affidavits from first and second hand Roswell crash witnesses. If you like to read, and are willing to look at the evidence from a skeptic's point of view as well as someone who believes in UFO's, this place could fascinate you for hours. I took the information and added it to my knowledge... More

The "museum" has not changed anything except science fiction displays for many years. As far as the annual festival goes, my family went three years in a row and saw the same speakers talking about the same subject matter each and every year! Roswell is the place for ufo enthusiasts, therefore the festival and "museum" should reflect that and be... More

Kind of a must-see when you're in roswell, this museum is small, but informative. I like that it is balanced and explores all options about what might have happened all those years ago. The exhibits are nice, but you may have to read a lot of newspaper clippings to get the whole picture. I still have no idea what happened,... More

The exhibits were well laid out. There was a lot of great evidence about what has happened in Roswell with a little bit of fun make-believe alien exhibits mixed in. Our kids, ages 14 and 10, had fun too.

Another of my usual stops in Roswell when I drive through. I always try to make the UFO Festival on July 4th weekend, too. For the 2014 festival a 3-day museum and lecture pass was only $12, which was worth it. The museum works very hard to bring in good lecturers and present good information. When it isn't festival weekend... More

Spent an interesting couple hours at the museum - great day to visit in the middle of the Alien Festival. The museum is for a very specific group of people, these are the ones who will enjoy it the most. Very limited enjoyability for children, unless you make an adventure. AND, excellent firework display on the 4th, I was surprised.
