“great look at early rocket history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2015

This museum has Robert Goddard's tools and some of his rocket parts. He was a pioneer in liquid propellant as a rocket fuel. Very educational and entertaining. Free admission. Make a donation if you like!

“Interesting exhibits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2015

We enjoyed the different art exhibits with the explanation of how they are done.
The Western exhibit which has a plethora of artifacts in separate displays from the days of the conquistadors to the present time.
The Goddard exhibit was interesting and filled in a lot of details in the story of rocket flight.
I would definitely recommend this as a place to visit in Roswell.

Great free museum. Had art and history and a gift shop. Particularly liked the Goddard section. Had lots about his rocket research. Worth a stop.

Beautiful exhibits and very educational. My 12 yrs old son was impressed even though he is not an artsy student. My in-laws from GA really enjoyed the visit as well.
