This town is just as you would imagine from the old sc-fi movies. If you visit, take a moment to think about those old dusty scenes from some b movie with a UFO. The area 51 zone is pretty hokey, but subway is two stores down. A little tongue in cheek reality check if you visit.

By the looks of it, this place was really great kitschy fun years ago when they first put in the displays. Since then, I think the upkeep has just not kept up. Everything seemed to be very run down and in need of a good cleaning. This is really unfortunate, because it looked like it could have been great fun... More

This is a fun "museum" created by a local artist. Visitors get to pose with the "aliens" in various displays. We had a lot of fun with this. It is silly and even hokey, but it was very fun. The price is reasonable $3 for adults and small kids are free.

Theres a 3 dollar charge and two for seniors. To go in to Area 51. You go in to another section where you can take pictures in these sets. This is fun for kids and kids at heart. Its really neat to see how the creator has progressed with all this. I really enjoyed it. They also have a gift... More

We went for about 30 minutes. That includes the gift shop portion. SO cheap for the admission. Family of 4 was $6. Kids were free 12 and under. Cheesy but SO fun.

Just a hole in the wall stop, and with a small diner in the back but all we needed was breakfast. Good eggs, potatoes and coffee. Not gourmet, but greatly appreciated that it was available when needed.

This place is awesome. Both kids enjoyed it and so did I. It's a must see and cheap! The stage alien scenes are perfect for picture taking. And the clerk is very helpful.

After a disappointing visit at another shop nearby, we walked over to Alien Zone. Sign on street is faded, and we almost missed it. This was a fun stop for some cheesy alien pics. Lots of life-sized displays that you can place yourself in, and take lots of pictures. Yes, as others have said, they displays are a bit tired... More
