This place is in the back room of a gift shop and you wont even know it exists unless you already know it exists (if that makes any sense). It's a silly place with aliens propped in everyday situations - a bar, living room, diner, hospital etc. Go there, take as many ridiculous pictures as you can and have a... More

It's cheesy, but a lot of fun. A lot of great photo ops with the Aliens. My husband and I had just as much fun as our 12 year old did. This place is a must see, and we will be going back!

This isn't a place to go looking for high-brow entertainment or lots of historical knowledge. It's just a fun place to take pictures and not take things seriously. I honestly didn't find Roswell in itself to be very exciting but at least my husband and I got some hilarious pictures from here. So this place made it worth it!

I found this visit of real interest and so very informative. It is only a small museum but everything you need to know. A film thrown in too about the events that took place. You are given stickers on arrival and are valid until closing time at 5. You can always disappear for lunch and come back to the rest... More

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!
