There's not much to say about Roswell, and this little gem gave us a great laugh. It is obviously put together by people who really care about their subject matter. It is silly, cheesy, and fun. Five bucks gets you in. Plenty to read, some fun displays, and you get to kill an hour or two until you can get... More

Outstanding if you are a UFO buff. You really get a sense for the historical time time of the incidents in Roswell and the people involved, and their personal stories. There are also great exhibits on other elements of the UFO phenomenon from photographs and sightings to their use in Hollywood movies. If you are into UFOs and you take... More

I guess that zombies and vampires have taken America's attention away from aliens, but as a devotee of X-Files and after visiting Devils Tower, how could I not stop in Roswell at this museum. Actually, I was pleasantly surprised at the even-handed presentation of the Roswell incident given by the International UFO Museum and Research Center. As expected, there are... More

It was an interesting place. Loaded with articles and posters about the Roswell incident and UFO's in general. If you like to read, this is a great place. But then again, when you go to Alien central you have to go into places about aliens, correct. If it worth a visit, but I would not go out of my way.

I guess I was expecting more props, there is a lot of information in this place a little too much for me. You can stay there for hours reading all these stories.

Even though I only rated it "average" it is a must see Roswell destination. It gives a good insight into the alleged UFO crash and it has a lot of fun alien propaganda. It is pretty small, and there is a lot of reading, but it is still worth while.

I wouldn't go out of my way to see this place, but if you happen to find yourself in Roswell, it's worth a stop. Admission is $5 and it closes at 5pm. It's one big room and reminded me of a glorified high school project on aliens.

The museum is very well done. The information provided is extensive with supporting documentation and pictures. In todays world with cell phones the government could not have hid this type of an event.

Nobody can pass by Roswell without reading about the famous "incident"! Really nice museum, extremely cheap, very simple, full of information and not too serious. I really like the funny part of the exhibition. The souvenirs were... well... ufoish ;)
