  • This place is as close as it gets to an authentic alien research center. They take it very seriously and are very thorough with the exhibits. I wouldn't recommend booking a flight to Roswell just to see it, bit even if you're driving through and can only spare 20 minutes in town I highly suggest you go! I LOVE that it's a pet friendly environment!
  • Pretty neat stop if in the area but I wouldn't go out too far out of your way. Lots of good photo ops. Spend an hour or so checking out the many photos and stories posted throughout the museum. Gift shop with many quirky items. Many shops on the street outside the museum.
