Pretty good museum to get more information about the alien speculations. It wasn't much of my taste, but you get to read different news paper articles and other people UFO encounters. It's not very big but still has some neat little things.

I went with my family and it was okay. If you have the time to stop and read everything then it's interesting. They don't have much for kids and it's small.

I was the one in my family excited to go. Like the other reviews state, there is a lot of reading. I would have liked to have heard someone speaking or at least someone at the exhibits to speak to. The media room was showing an old movie, Fire In the Sky, which no one was watching. I was glad... More

On our recent trip we detoured 2 hours to visit the UFO museum in Roswell. I guess Im not really sure what I expected but it was ok. Many newspaper clippings and articles about the event that occured there in the 1940's. There are a few displays set up that show the alien autopsy and a really cool Egyptian murial... More

If you come thru this area, you have to stop in and check it out. They have photos and all the stories about Alien visits to our world that will get you thinking.

When you are in Roswell, you need to do things right and a visit here is a must. The exhibits have a lot of information on the alien ship, cover-up, research, etc.. And past alien sightings, petroglyphs that look like spacemen, crop circles, and more. It was interesting and I still don't know what to think.

Stopped here en route to Carlsbad Caverns. Interesting stuff and worth a look if you're passing through Roswell, definitely don't go out of your way to see it though. Only $5 to get in so you get what you pay for

Pet friendly. This museum has a lot of reading to it. They do have a display in the center of it and it does do a show. Which is pretty cool. It has a store of all sorts of souvenirs. My kids enjoyed it very much. I would of liked them to have summer hours. Open later then normal, for... More

Great place, wonderful experience, huge diversity of human visitors not to be missed. The exhibits cover every aspect of UFOs. Do you believe? Does not matter, this is a great place to visit. I could not believe there was a line of people waiting to pay their entrance fee on a Monday morning in July. Where did they all come... More

My son and I definitely enjoyed the exhibits, which were full of pictures and explanations. The alien mock-ups were cool to take pictures with, as well as the alien "autopsy." I would recommend this in conjunction with a UFO Tour in Roswell! The price is right and it is very interesting. The truth is out there and some of it... More
