Right across the street from the UFO Museum, this gift shop has many items to complete the visit. Lots of magnets and other small items for yourself or friends that didn't make the trip. The prices are very reasonable and they have a huge assortment of t shirts also. Wel worth a look.

This is a little gift shop that has a great area set up for taking silly alien photos...perfect for a trip to Roswell! It's only a few dollars and definitely worth it to laugh and have fun staging photos with their aliens and props. So many different scenes to pose in. If you don't take yourself too seriously and just... More

The Alien zone was great fun on our trip to Roswell. Lots of info on area 51, sightings, UFOs, great models and art work all makes for an interesting visit. It was a Sunday and off season when we visited so wasn't many people at it. But got some cool tshirts as novelty gifts for back home. Worth a visit.

We enjoyed checking out the stores along Main St in Roswell. We needed an extra Alien gift for a friend so we popped in to Area 51. They offered a few different items and we shopped, chatted with the friendly merchant, and decided to take a tour of their Alien Zone. It was hokey but fun, and it was obvious... More

In the store there is the Area 51 that you can take some very funny pictures and all for very cheap! We paid $3 per person. It worth it!

We were recommended this place by the Visitor Center for "great photo opportunities" with aliens. We walked into the place and were like "OMG are you serious!?" IT's a really tacky, silly, tired, rundown, smelly, musty room of awful souvenirs and a room out back with "alien figures" set up in all kinds of different situations - many of which... More

Clever scenes with aliens make for funny pictures. We had a lot of fun. Totally worth the cheap admission fee.

It's another little t-shirt and gift shop on the main drag, but what sets it apart is the back room...Area 51! They have lots of different vignettes set up to take hilarious pictures with. We went full on silly, trust me. It was great fun, and for only a couple of bucks each! We bought a t-shirt out of sheer... More

At only $2 per person, all you need is to alliw yourself to enjoy the campy and ridiculousness of the place! You do a walk through of "Area 51." It's silky, it's stupid and it's campy, but a fun part of the Roswell experience!
