This is one of the only places really worth going to if you are passing through Roswell, and even this was sad on the day that I went. They have a really cool playscape, an entire setup of aliens in every day human tableaus, and what is supposed to be a snack bar/restaurant in the back. Everything was shut down... More

This is the must-visit place to get your tourist photos from Roswell, it's a friendly and welcoming place and the shop has some fantastic reasonably priced merchandise too!!

The town of Roswell area with the UFO museum definitely tries to cash in on the alien theme. It's a bit hokey, but interesting and fun to spend a few hours wandering around and looking at the t-shirts and other items for sale.

They are really dedicated to their store and have great T-shirt designs. Look forward to returning again in the future. As a dedicated UFO Hunter and space tourist, this became the crown jewel of the Roswell experience for me! :)

We went to the down the street museum but this place was the most fun and worth the stop. It has the alien scenes to take pictures with and little trinkets you can buy are cheap and cute. I liked there little alien figurines more than the other shops, too.

Even though this place is rather run down, it was great fun! You enter to a souvenir shop, and while the selection is fairly limited, the prices are a bit better than other stores. But the main attraction is the part at the back where there are models of aliens doing all sorts of weird things. The entrance fee was... More

We had an amazing time here. This is by far the most fun place in Roswell New Mexico. Everyone should check this place out if you have a chance.

We literally slid into the Alien Zone less than 15 minutes before they closed. We flew in to Roswell knowing it would be close and hoping we could make one attraction. Glad we chose this one - the woman running the register welcomed us and waved us in. It's not fancy! There are some dusty staged scenes (just like you... More

You can totally find cooler trinkets in other stores. This shop had very little items and was overall very weird. We did not do the Area 51 side. If you walk to the back you can take one or two cool pictures with assorted rubber aliens. Please fix your shirt selection it's poor.
