Nice display of Air Force memorabilia from the Walker Air Force base. Friendly and helpful veteran staff. Very meaningful. Gotta look inside the terminal because the signage stops directing you outside.

I was totally surprised as to all of what happened during the war in Roswell it was fascinating and interesting especially when you speak to the locals about what happened.

Too much information crammed into too small a space. Easily accessible and plenty of parking. Very informative receptionist at the entrance. Part of the Roswell Airport terminal with plans on a larger museum with static aircraft displays.

The museum is small but well done. The airport replaced the old Walker Air Force Base. This museum goes over the history of the base. It is a one room museum.

Fine to go to if you are at the airport already, but certainly not anything to make a special trip for. Considering the history, it is extremely minimal.

It's about the size of my bedroom. I would not consider it to be a museum, rather an informative historical dedicatory room. If you want to check it out while flying in or out of Roswell that is ideal. Please donate money or property to contribute to the transformation of this room potentially into something greater someday. Also, if you... More

The history of the base and outlying airfields is important and disappearing. People should remember the military presence, how unfortunate that they left, and the POW camp. Small museum and tucked away, but people should make the effort to spend a few minutes there.

Due to lack of funding, these exhibits are currently on display inside the Roswell International Air Centre. Small, yet packed full of aviation history and artefacts, it's a nice glimpse into an important part of Roswells past. A donation and 30 minutes is all you need, so I urge visitors to support this museum.

A small museum with info about the Air Force base. Worth a quick look and free. It is housed in the airport terminal.
