The tee shirts are the cheapest I could find so it is worth going just for them. The $3 fee for the back room is worth it just for the laugh factor, think early science fiction shows with the cardboard background and paper mache and you will be transported back in time.

This was the only alien-themed shop we visited and I'm happy for it. While in the shop, at least 2 other patrons asked if we'd been to other shops. Both people said they'd visited several and were totally disappointed, recommending we not waste our times elsewhere. Yes, there's a cheesiness to the shop, but that's the point. Plus AWESOME prices... More

When you're going to Roswell to look at alien stuff, you expect it to be hokey. This place was a hoot. Lots of opportunities to pose in the displays. It's worth the $2 entry fee.

Interesting place I knew I had to see while we were here! Had stuff to buy and some photo ops, but if you pay a bit extra you can go where there are lots of props to take photos of. It was cheesy but we laughed and took lots of fun photos.

This place was so cute! The knick knacks are super expensive but they have a slide inside for kids to play on while you shop. The real jewel of this place is the room in the back where you can take the best pictures of you hanging out with aliens. IT was worth the $ to go!

This is a great place to take photos with aliens. You pay a small fee and go in and take photos with aliens in different scenarios. I love to scrapbook and I had a hay day in here with my hubby and kids. We all had a great time. It is very cheese but so fun.

The family and I did a stop through Roswell. We spent maybe a hour and half touring the UFO Musem, souvenir shops and Alien Zone. For 2 adults and 3 kids it was only $10 entrance into Alien Zone and we had a blast taking pictures. We came out with some pretty fantastic shots. The kids thought they were the... More

The prices of the tourist stuff was lower than anywhere else AND for $3 PP we went in the back for photo opp time. There were so many fun... More
