This museum is FULL of information! Unfortunately, we did not allow ourselves enough time to take it all in before they closed for the day. There is a lot to read, from witness statements to news articles. There is also a movie to watch and displays to view.

It's small and nothing to get your hopes up about. Go for a good laugh and check out some alien stuff.

My mother was born here. My last visit was 1952. Just a one horse town. The museum has on orderly collection of articles and photos. Interesting display about ancient astronauts. A couple of films, and of course a large gift store. We enjoyed.

Roswell is famous for UFO stuff. While this museum has a lot of stuff , I found some, aside from the history part, a little on the plastic side.

Been to visit twice when passing through the state. Wife enjoys it a lot as she had a UFO sighting of her own. I enjoy the library and the NASA reports section. This carved Aztec piece is very interesting. Not sure of its authenticity. Great entertainment value

My hubby and I loved this place! Actually, we loved Roswell. It had such a nice feel about it! The museum had lots of information and reference material. It was well maintained and had friendly, helpful staff. Also a cute wee gift shop. This museum answered the questions I had on this interesting topic. Well worth a visit!

If you visit Roswell, you must have to go to the museum. It's a small but very informative museum. I really enjoy visiting and reading all about the 1947 accident. Make sure to take pictures of your experience. Must visit the gift shop.

Wife and I being retired like to visit new and unique places when we travel across the country. Since we were in the vicinity of Roswell, New Mexico we decided to drive a bit out of our way and visit the UFO museum. Big mistake on our part given what we found at this museum, our opinion only of course.... More

Anyone visiting Roswell must spend a day at this museum. This is what Roswell is all about. The museum was interesting and informative.
