The museum gives alot of detailed information along with limited photos of the timeline of the alleged UFO crash and government coverup with occured in July 1947. Tastefully done. The gift shop has a nice collection of souvenirs.

The museum was pretty interesting, but it isn't worth going to if you aren't already in the area. My husband and I really enjoyed the first half of the museum but the second half got old quick.

Since we were driving through Roswell, I suggested we stop for lunch and then to see the museum. It isn't much, but worth the $5 for a good chuckle. Surprisingly, I did learn a few things about that time period and that several shows and...More

I enjoyed it but recommend Dennis’ UFO tour first so you can just browse the photos and models without reading for 4 hours. Otherwise, bring you a snack. Pros: lots of pictures, models, info, artifacts; huge gift shop; nice staff; wheelchair accessible; access to materials...More
