Skimmed through the walls at the museum about the first US recorded encounter from an alien event. One of the films was interesting in documenting the occurrences that happened in 1947. Would liked to have seen more current data on UFO encounters. We know the...More

If you're in Roswell, this is the must see place to visit. The cost is minimal. Whether you feel strongly one way or the other, many facts on the events related to possible reality of UFOs and extraterrestrial life forms are presented.

You have to make up your own mind. No actual proof, but lots of reports by the residents of the area. Lots of reading. Government definately covered something up, but not sure what it was. The truth is out there!

Well no aliens spotted this weekend. Good weekend to just get away and explore. Friendly people. Good restaurants, and looking forward to our next long weekend to venture out further.

Although we only had close encounters once (and that was with the German family in the parking lot), the museum proved to be "out of the world" (Get it?!?!?!) No, really it's just in New Mexico. Portions were being spruced up, so Sally had to...More

This place is worth a stop. Something happened and they present the newspaper articles as well as the “cover up” that followed. We certainly left talking about the possibilities. The town has found a way to capitalize on it, but it’s all done in fun....More

We were there about 3 hours and quite honestly, I would have preferred staying a little longer (but kids got hungry). We could have come back the same day but got busy with other things and just didn't make it back. To... More

I'm very interested in the topic and I spent about 2 hours there. I read many of the interpretive documents by the displays. After a while, there's so much, you can't read it all.

I believe service dogs are welcome, since I saw one at the museum when I was there. The museum may be small but pretty spacious between displays.
