This is an interesting tour. You could potentially spend all day here if you want to read all the information, or you could breeze through in less than 30 minutes and hit the highlights.

Good for a small town art gallery. Free admission. Really only takes about an hour to do whole gallery, schedule your visit around the planetarium schedule to make it worth while.

We drove to Roswell just to go to the museum. It was a fun way to spend an afternoon. Would recommend watching the video as it was quite informative.

This place didn’t to convince me. I expected more. A tiny place with a few dolls and a few copies of magazine articles.

OK, so this is a fun place and doesn't cost much to get in so it's worth a stop. But just know that some of it is pretty hokey. Some of the letters of documentation really make you wonder if there really is someone out...More
