First of all this place was FREE, I was like what??? It took me two hours to go through, so much knowledge and art in here you almost need a full day. They have little projects set up in a few rooms for families or adults to draw, or make your own art. Pretty cool if you have little ones not wanting to walk around with you. A big display on Goddards missile and a whole room set up like his workshop. A must see!
Need a real museum after looking at UFOs? Come here for some excellent art AND science. The center is free, and has both art and exhibits on Robert Goddard, father of rocketry. Check out a display of his workshop, and go outside to see a sculpture of Goddard getting ready to launch a rocket. I'm not usually an art person, but I really enjoyed the variety of art on display, both by local artists and artists that have done a residency in Roswell in the past. There's art to please everyone's tastes. This was a much more enjoyable and satisfying experience than the UFO museum, and was the highlight of my visit to Roswell.
