This is the hokie photo op area. We had a lot of fun posing for pictures with all the different alien displays. It's only $3.00 and it's good clean fun. Nice little souvenir shop next door too for all your area 51 paraphernalia. If you are going to visit Roswell... you must stop by here.

December 1998 In the future when you are travelling from ( Pensacola ) Florida to southern California make time to visit Roswell, New Mexico. In this small town there was UFO Museum and a few other retail shoppes that sold small 6 - 8 inch tall Alien dolls with eyes that light up when squeezed. One shoppe that could have... More

Selfie and postcard making central! You went to Roswell for one reason, admit it, and that one reason is right here. You know, in case you don't see some actual aliens. It's just down the street from the international UFO museum. Walk into the souvenir shop next to Area 51 and tell them you want in. Pay the $3...worth twice... More

Roswell is KNOW for this. So you need to stop by and check this place out. We did while in town this past March. It was a blast. All of the prices for the items are great as well!

Definitely worth a stop. $3 admission. Several photo opportunities. They have a gift shop which includes post cards. Then you enter the alien zone. Very fun. My youngest (5) was a little scared, but he managed.... It was fun. An hour is plenty of time to visit.

Driving back to Texas from Colorado, decided to make detour to visit Roswell. Stopped here but it was very lame. All the stands were unattended, some were damaged, written on and 'abused'. Overall I though it was not funny at all due to how badly maintained it was. There was a person charging the entrance fee in the front and... More

I'd read about this place on TripAdvisor - and it sounded like a blast. I am an avid scrapbooker - so any opportunity to take pictures...well I am there. We had to ask the woman at the front counter about the "back room" because they don't really publicize it. It's $3 a person - but since my husband if former... More

The place looks like a shop when you arrive. It looked a little tired and dusty. We went in and paid the 3 dollars entry fee. It's quite dark inside. The owners have spent a lot of time building the different settings and if you want an hours fun taking pictures of or with aliens you will enjoy this. If... More

There were lots of sets with aliens. You can sit in the them and take pictures which are great souvenirs. The downside is that they are kind of dusty.
