All this museum consists of are news articles and personal accounts in frames on the wall. There were two cheaply put together statues of aliens which lit up. There was very little variety in a silent room which quickly became very dull and stale. I would not recommend going here. If you want aliens go to Rachel in Nevada -... More

Lots of things to read Would have been nicer if there was more interactive things to do Gift shop was a total joke, why aren't the photos allowed in there? Because people might see how bad it is??!

Well worth $5 fee. Easy to navigate, start at one end and work your way around. They encourage photos and there are great aliens to pose with. The best are next to the spaceship, but keep an eye on them. Large gift shop with great T shirts, books, everything. And I admit, I paid another $5 to have my pic... More

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.
