Nice museum. Inexpensive to visit. A lot of reading involved. But would still recommend, if you want to ser more about aliens.

Yes, it is tacky, and a bit bizarre, but why else would you travel to Roswell unless it was on your way to somewhere else.

Interesting museum. The only downside, there's too much reading to be done. If you want some more interaction, book a UFO history tour with Dennis.

On our way back from Carlsbad to Albuquerque we had two routes, the one through Roswell was a bit longer, but we chose it to stop at this Museum. We think that it was well worth it. Very good collection of related affidavits, recordings, news clips - the UFO show was very nicely done (runs every 30').

I had heard about this incident since I was a teenager and have always been skeptical, yet interested. In some ways, it felt like we stepped back in time. With many newspaper accounts and interviews and affadavits from others. It was odd that so many people didn't talk about it until the end of their lives. There are also recreations... More

Unless you're passing through Roswell en route to somewhere else this is not worth a special side trip. As others have mentioned, basically a collection of old newspaper articles and photos. Even if you are interested in reading most of them at least half of them are hung so high on the walls you can't read them unless you're roughly... More

I have always been curious about the events in Roswell so I was happy to add the UFO Museum as a stop on a recent trip through New Mexico. The museum isn't huge but presents a ton of information, mostly in the form of newspaper clippings and other documents. There are also some corny displays of aliens but there is... More

This place is quirky and fun...nothing earth shattering! It's an inexpensive and cool way to get out of the desert heat for a bit. There are some cute exhibits, and lots of pics and newspaper articles from the 'crash of 1947 time period. It's worth a gander! It's a G rated attraction, but I'm guessing younger kiddos may get bored... More

What a find, this place offered irrefutable proof of the government conspiracy and I recommend spending time in the file library. This cache offers a veritable treasure trove of evidence for the UFO believer (or skeptic) to peruse. The information provided was extensive and the exhibits were exciting. Don't miss the video presentation, it is seriously once in a lifetime... More
