After hearing so much about Roswell, NM, we decided to make a pit stop there on our way home from Santa Fe. We were glad we did! It's not a "fancy" place with all the fluff. It furnishes a lot of "documentation" on alleged events that took place there more than a half century ago. It was all very interesting material that has to make you think about that age-old question: Are we alone? My 16 and 11 year olds both enjoyed it and got different things out of it. You can spend a day there, but we only had about an hour, so we skimmed through and read what interested us most. They touch upon different topics, i.e. crop circles, alien abductions, movies based on aliens, aliens thousands of years ago and more. The gift shop had some cool things, a lot of them a bit pricey. This is one of those cool places that you can say you have been to and impress all your friends!

The fee is very low for a weird sensation. You can take your time and view all the gathered pictures, articles, and items related to the supposed crash of aliens from outside this world and when you leave, you will - I repeat - you WILL wonder if it is real, a cover-up, or hoax. I really feel you will leave questioning if it is a cover-up. Hoax? Too much there that involves too many people to be a hoax. Real? Well, you can touch and see for yourself the evidence that the museum has gathered and displayed. The other factor is that this is in a small town in the great state of New Mexico. These people do not have access to all the expensive equipment available in the big cities across our country. They can only use what they have and what they have is amazing!

Whether you believe or not is unimportant. Enter with an open mind and I guarantee you will leave questioning if it really happened.

We told our kids we were going to visit Roswell on our road trip and if we were never heard from again, they'd know that the aliens abducted us!! The UFO Museum was a must stop as we drove through Roswell. It was very reasonably priced. The exhibits, the historical data from newspapers, affidavits and other media was extensive. Of course, there is still a doubt in my mind as to whether it happened as it was reported, but there certainly is LESS doubt in my mind after visiting the museum. A fun couple of hours!!!

A very comprehensive exhibit with more about the Roswell saucer crash than you ever existed. If you are in Roswell you must drop in and take the walk around tour. The gift shop has many good gag gifts. All and all very entertaining.

Went to the musum and was really surprised at how fun it was.
The staff was great fun. We spent about 2+ hr's there, saw part of one of the movies.
The exhibits are very interesting. I am now a firm believer.
The info is great. We (all 3 of us ) had a blast.
This is a $5.00 entrance fee place but the sticker will get u in all day.

The Tshirts are too cute.
