Great pictures

Lots of pictures to take !! T shirts are a good deal! Our boys had fun! A lil dark though. And some of the exhibits were close to falling apart.

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

A fun whimsical place. We took a few pics with the staged aliens. Plenty of souvenirs for us tourist to look through. We enjoyed it & would recommend.

Be very, very careful. You never know when an alien will reach out to touch you. Fun place, easy to find, lots of photos and eye witness reports. If you didn't believe this place will try to convince you. Have fun

This small museum was super fun if you like this sort of thing and have an open mind. The newspaper articles may not be interesting for the smaller children. Also, it doesn't take much time out of your schedule to go through.

I have heard so much about this iconic area and I think it was over before I even knew I was in it. It was only because of the sign that I knew we were there. I was excited but then quickly became disappointed.
