  • Kinda cool if you’re a history buff and/or interested in UFO sightings, particularly the 1947 Roswell event. That said, the only thing that interested our one year old was the gift shop full of cheesy...  more »

  • Super fun museum!!!! To be honest I had never heard of the Roswell Cover-up stuff, but we were driving home through New Mexico and my husband was dying to go. So we stopped in, wasn't expensive at all! They are awesome and give discounts to veterans/military/fire fighters/police officers. I think we spent like a good 2 hours there.. they give you a sticker and it's good for all day and you can exit and re-enter the museum all day. The staff was super friendly!!!! Lots of awesome pictures, replicated artifacts from the wreck and lots of history.
  • Absolutely adorable, and I'm a skeptic! Good place to take the family for a fun hour or two. In detail descriptions and replicas. Really neat map of pins and photo booth. Guy at the reg was so polite! Gift shop is also well organized.
  • Wanted to go since I was a kid. Went with wife and dogs. It was well laid out very informative and has great displays. It is not as fancy as some museums, but the information and enthusiasm is very well appreciated. Super friendly people.
  • Although the town may be overrated, this is a MUST SEE when traveling through Roswell. Staff went above and beyond with excellent customer service. This museum is pet friendly and only $5! The gift shop is wonderful and full of fun and stylish toys/clothing. The Museum itself was AWESOME! My favorite part was the Research Library. The two girls working were extremely informative. The extent of material offered to view was AMAZING. Definitely recommend visiting!!!
  • Excellent museum and great value. 5$ admission. They really have a lot to offer. Your sticker lasts all day so you can actually go eat lunch and come back. Definitely recommend
