You can plow though all the UFO stops in about 2 hours. About 5-6 stores a UFO museum. But then there is the other stuff that I found really interesting like the art museum, planetarium, farmers market, and visitors center.

So much more could be done with the whole alien concept, but at best the Roswell experience was mediocre at best.

So much to see and do. Loved this quaint town and the kind, pleasant people. Loved the alien carvings but truly intrigued by the history.

I was expecting Roswell to be a fun, buzzing town, but it seemed very quiet. There really is not much to see and it's not any different to many other small towns in the USA, other than a UFO shaped McDonalds and lots of alien...More
