Unless you're passing through Roswell en route to somewhere else this is not worth a special side trip. As others have mentioned, basically a collection of old newspaper articles and photos. Even if you are interested in reading most of them at least half of them are hung so high on the walls you can't read them unless you're roughly... More

I have always been curious about the events in Roswell so I was happy to add the UFO Museum as a stop on a recent trip through New Mexico. The museum isn't huge but presents a ton of information, mostly in the form of newspaper clippings and other documents. There are also some corny displays of aliens but there is... More

This place is quirky and fun...nothing earth shattering! It's an inexpensive and cool way to get out of the desert heat for a bit. There are some cute exhibits, and lots of pics and newspaper articles from the 'crash of 1947 time period. It's worth a gander! It's a G rated attraction, but I'm guessing younger kiddos may get bored... More

What a find, this place offered irrefutable proof of the government conspiracy and I recommend spending time in the file library. This cache offers a veritable treasure trove of evidence for the UFO believer (or skeptic) to peruse. The information provided was extensive and the exhibits were exciting. Don't miss the video presentation, it is seriously once in a lifetime... More

We visited the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, NM. We've checked that off our bucket list. The people at the museum were really nice. We only had one night in Roswell, but we made the most of it. We visited the museum and took pictures with the many photo ops in the downtown area.

The staff here was very friendly and knowledgeable. So much information about the event. A few things were a little "cheesy" but that's for the non believers entertainment! This is a must see.

Mostly newspaper clippings and reports, no real "evidence" so it won't convince you that aliens have visited but an interesting visit nonetheless. At least can check it off our southwest list.

A must place to stop and go through if in Roswell. Some very interesting information on government programs and people involved in the area. Then there is the goofy UFO displays that are fun.

If you're reading this, I don't need to tell you why Roswell is famous. My girlfriend and I stayed overnight during a cross-country road trip. Truthfully, you only need a few hours in Roswell and you can see a couple of the main attractions and visit a few alien-themed gift shops before grabbing a bite to eat and moving on.... More

Great little museum. Worth the 5$ entrance fee. Make time to watch videos. And this museum is pet friendly! An added perk if you are traveling with a furry four legged friend.
