Aliens?????

Fun little museum. Enjoyed the controversial topic. Did aliens really land? I think the debate will continue...something to think about.

Interesting and unique site. If you believe in UFOs or not, this is a must see. DO NOT pass through Roswell without stopping to visit. When the alien UFO exhibit came to life, it scared the **** out of my daughter. Priceless..

Roswell is a small town and so is the museum. But if you are passing through, this is a must see. The museum entails a history of the first reports of the Roswell sightings to abductions. Fun to read the memorabilia and watch movies. The research library is well kept and interesting. Nice little gift shop. Worth the small entrance... More

I detoured through Roswell during a visit to New Mexico. It's a fairly normal town from what I saw, aside from UFO attractions and general theme in places. The musum was off the main drag and easy to find. Parking availability was good, and located next to the building. Entrance fee was $5. Whether or not you believe in a... More

Great place for those who believe we have been visited by aliens. Lots of exhibits which require reading the history and facts about the crash. Museum geared for adults, a bit hokey but still fun and interesting. Loved it

So I admit it....I'm an X-files lover, so coming here was something I knew I would enjoy. I would not, however, recommend it for young kids. It's mostly reading of newspaper articles and affidavits of witnesses. After reading everything there was "something" that crashed as there are too many folks who swore they saw stuff...but was it truly alien or... More

The UFO Museum is interesting. If you are into reading documents and newspaper clippings it is really interesting. Kids find lots of the pictures, dioramas and exhibits interesting. It is most interesting if you take the time to read about the event.

I enjoyed visiting the UFO museum it was very informative. It did make me wonder about the UFO crash in '47. I also loved the way they had the aliens positioned throughout the museum. The library also has a lot of information. It was a fun experience.
