First of all, this museum is a bit hard to locate - it's in the airport terminal building. Second, it consists of basically a single room of artifacts, which were interesting, though I'm not sure I would have taken the time to look it up...More

We wanted to visit the aircraft "boneyard" and learned what is now the Roswell Airport was Walker AFB up until 1967, and is where SAC began in the 1950's. Quite a discovery from a cool museum.

We stopped while in town to see this. It has some interesting displays, but you can't access anything on the old flight line. A better source of info is my father, who was stationed here 1956 to 1959.

We walked through the small one room Museum while waiting on a flight. It was very nice distraction from airport board-em.

Disappointed. Was only 2 small rooms of interest. Didn't have much to offer. Not your typical museum.
