  • Plenty of content, including a crop circles exhibit. It presents multiple perspectives. You certainly should visit it when you are in Roswell.  more »
  • Last time I passed thru Roswell thirty years ago, this was the must-see attraction. It still is. The town of Roswell tips its hat to the 1947 "Roswell Incident" with aliens permeating business names.....  more »

  • Okay, so this UFO thing isn't going to be for everyone but I'd recommend having a gander. The price is cheap, it's a good way to get out of the heat and if you have any interest in the subject whatsoever you'll find this place interesting. I've read the books, I have an interest in the subject and was expecting a lot of cheesiness. I was surprised. You can spend an entire day in here reading the displays. Probably more. Along with the well known "lore" and nonsense there is a spattering of really good information on what happened outside Roswell in 1947. You'll see cheesy dioramas that add a good entertainment value. I liked it. Also, should you be interested, their library and research rooms completely took me by surprise. They probably have a copy of EVERYTHING ever published on the subject and it was something to see all this documentation in one place. I left pleased with it all.
  • This place is so cool for anybody who loves or is even curious about the history and culture of UFO's and aliens in this country and beyond. It is not kitschy or corny; there is tons of documentation and photos from the 1947 Roswell crash, to alleged cover-ups, all the down to artwork and dioramas of aliens in modern pop culture. The price is not bad at all, and for someone who likes to read everything like myself, this place easily has a couple hours worth of things to keep you busy and entertained. Well worth a visit!
