The Roswell Museum (formerly Roswell Museum and Art Center) was founded in 1936 and is located in Roswell, New Mexico, United States. The museum features exhibits about the art and history of the American Southwest, as well as the Robert H. Goddard laboratory.
The museum operates the Patricia Lubben Bassett Art Education Center, opened in 1998, as a learning facility. The facility houses two classrooms, a ceramics studio, and research library, all of which supports a museum-school-community creative exchange that provides arts education opportunities for all ages.

The Robert H. Goddard Planetarium was built through an initiative shared by the museum and the Roswell Independent School District in 1968. Once considered the largest planetarium in New Mexico, it is capable of reproducing the night sky as seen from any point on earth. The Robert H. Goddard Planetarium is home to a state-of-the-art, full-dome digital theater system with Digistar 6 programming.

  • Wonderful museum with an extensive collection of art and history. As opposed to many museums which have too much to read, the Roswell Museum is able to give you a great number of items of high quality. The rotating featured work is as good as the permanent work, and the admission price of $10 (as an out of town tourist) is well worth it. The staff was also very nice and helpful!
  • This museum is fantastic! Lovely exhibit on Dr. Goddard! The planetarium is very cool and the young person that presented was great! Great insight into New Mexico history and heritage!
