  • Really nice museum! Beautiful displays. Great way to see the local history. Plan to spend at least an hour and half to see it all. And it's even free!!!!  more »
  • I visited this Museum to see Robert Goddard's workshop. I was blown away. The museum is large, lots of interesting art, historical artifacts, a neat gun collection and a planetarium. Guess what? IT"S FREE. You can give them a donation, no one will twist your arm. It's a beautiful place that deserves attention. If you're looking for something to do in Roswell, please visit this place. I loved it.
  • A great museum with a lot of interest. I really like Peter Moran drawings and watercolors of Pueblos. The whole Moran family seems to have been talented artists. Interesting exhibit on Goddard's rocketry.
