This museum was loads of fun! If you’re wanting to take very young children expect you won’t get as much out of the experience. There is loads of reading that was AMAZING! 100% must do activity in Roswell!

This museum is kind of a “must do when in Roswell” stop, and it’s cheap and has some entertaining exhibits. There’s a ton of reading so our kids ages 8-16 weren’t very interested in staying long, but they loved the alien displays and for that...More

You can view the entire museum in about an hour. The research library however would take several days. The gift shop is nice and the staff are helpful and friendly. It's a neat place to visit at least once, and it's only $5.00 a person...More

This is the second time I've been to the museum, and it never disappoints! I love all the displays and artifacts from what many people believe to be the alien spaceship crash outside of Roswell. This is a must-see stop on your way through New...More
