It was not disappointed at all in this museum and wished I had had more time to go through it. My only "criticism" -- and it really isn't a criticism.....more an inconvenient reality ...... is that it requires a lot of reading. That said, all...More

The museum was definitely quirky and interesting, and makes for some fun photo ops, but it was not very convincing regarding aliens, nor crash artifacts. My husband, who is a weather observer, said the material they described and showed in pictures looked like the material...More

Really great museum well worth the price. Lots of info to read and look at and some super cool props. Watch for the UFO to light up and move with smoke and sounds also. And the best gift shop for alien related merch in town...More

The museum was cool but I really wanted to see actual artifacts related to the crash and if that's what you're looking to see you're not going to see that there's nothing there it's all replicas. There's a lot of affidavits and accounts of what...More

I think I went to the museum with super high expectations, and it didn't quite meet it. Don't get me wrong, if you are going to Roswell for the alien experience...you should most certainly stop here and check it out. It is worth the admission...More

Disappointed. The information on the alien crash is repeated over and over and over in a not so interesting presentation. Wouldn't say it was a wasted stop; the fun we get out of telling people we went there is worth the $5.

Found this online and it looked fun. Not only was it fun it was very interesting. $5.00 admission for the museum which has lots of documentation from the Roswell crash and presents information for both sides. There are fun alien exhibits throughout as well. Building...More

The first part of the museum is dedicated to the Roswell UFO crash in 1947. They do a very good job of documenting the crash and presenting both sides of the incident, cover up vs weather balloon. You can come to your own conclusion. There...More

I believe service dogs are welcome, since I saw one at the museum when I was there. The museum may be small but pretty spacious between displays.
