Walk across the street to the International UFO Museum. This place had little selection, mostly with their logo on it. Not overly friendly.

This was a fun stop. You can pay a dollar to take your picture with alien props. Some are fun and odd all at the same time. You might as well stop if you are in Roswell. It is only a dollar.

Had fun taking pictures of the Grandkids here. They have aliens sitting in booths like they are having lunch at a restaurant. This is also a good gift shop with all kinds of Alien memorabilia.

A highlight of our trip! For three bucks you get so much fun. It's tacky, kitschy, and all around AH-mazing! Out of this world and a must if you want some awesome alien pics! Gift shop had amazingly low prices!

My title says it all. It's holy, it's childish, I saw no value whatsoever in going into this place. Take the time you would have spent here and go to the real museum.

We arrived on a Friday and squealed into their parking lot at 4:45. They were closing at 5:00 but we're happy to admit us and told us not to feel rushed.

Hello. Actually We never saw the t-shirt with that on it. If I had, definitely would have purchased one. Very funny.
