  • We loved this place!! Exactly why we wanted to go to Roswell! If you're a believer in the conspiracy, then this is a must see! The evidence is undeniable and there's so much information in this museum...  read more »
  • Simple museum, lots of reading with a few fun photo props. Worth admission price $5. Great research library if you have time to spend! 
  • Went through Roswell in our RV just to see what was there. The UFO museum was worth the time and $3 we paid to get in. Interesting history of the events surrounding Area 51 and the crash of the UFO. T...  read more »
  • My husband and I stopped here on our road trip. This museum was exactly what we expected. It was kitchy, fun, and a little informative. We came during the annual UFO convention. So it was pretty busy and there were vendors throughout the museum. The place did feel a bit old and outdated. We are pretty agnostic about UFOs and aliens but I felt like it would have been cooler to see more contemporary stuff and the displays in general just need a face lift. But it was fun for our ten bucks and the gift shop is not over priced.
  • Very inexpensive which makes it worth the visit. It's certainly a unique museum which captures the history of the events that occurred in Roswell. There's a lot of information presented here. The museum is mostly wall hung reading material so younger kids may not enjoy it as much. It's a decent way to spend an hour or so.
  • 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 from? Roswell is not exactly on the main road for vacationing families! Take a look at my photos and check out both the people who showed up and the exhibits. And a few days after our visit a UFO was seen outside the International Space Station live on TV until NASA cut the feed, some think to avoid showing the craft approaching earth. And that week several more were seen around the world, South America, Russia, etc. I spent one summer vacation during my high school years reading books on UFO investigations and, yes, it is a life long interest. At one time I said if only 1% of the sighting were real then we have aliens among us. And now that we are in the Presidential campaign, 2016, don't you think it is possible an alien could be running for office. If elected we would have an alien in charge of our military. Perhaps there are other leaders around the world that are aliens. So I strongly recommend you find the time to visit this research center in Roswell. What a trip!!
  • Walked in 45 mins before closing. The lady at the counter had to remind is that it was closing in 45 mins as if she was annoyed. The place was a joke. A U-shaped display of pictures and articles that took 10 minutes to go through. It was more like a science fair display that took up the whole room. Poorly run and maintained to say the least.
  • This was a fun spot. My pre-teen daughter loved the 'diaramas' and we read the articles and walked the museum together. The Research Library was really awesome, well organized and certainly a wealth of information. We would return just for this section!! There is quite a bit about Crop Circles and we loved the art side of that experience as well. This is a simple, inexpensive and fun place to stop when in Roswell. We recommend it for older kids and adults oy though, lots of reading and nothing hands on at all.
