Our first stop was the Tourist and Information Center on Main St in Roswell. They gave us a map that included attractions. The lady recommended we walk across the way to the next building with is the Roswell Museum & Art Center. We took her advice but wasn't sure if my grandson (4 yrs old) would care for it. He... More

It was a welcomed break from all the alien paraphernalia. Be sure to check out the Native American items in the back.

Very nice treatment of Dr. Goddard's rocketry research. The art was also very nice. A very lovely museum.

We saw no hard evidence of UFOs. But the trip was fun. The displays are cheesy but well thought out.

Another Free thing to do in Roswell. We enjoyed the way the exhibits are arranged by topic. Information from local living to Native Americans to space exploration.

Great collections with plenty of available information on artists. The information on Goddard and his rocket work in Roswell was a total surprise to me. The 2 hours I was at the Museum flew by very quickly!
