I didn't like that much the museum. It was pretty small and there isn't a lot of stuff to see. They have a center piece of aliens and it's pretty nice. But apart from that, I didn't see anything worth the trip.

This was a disappointment. Nearly the whole place was generic information you already knew about this place if you took time to visit this town. Walmart frames with printed information in them. Waste of time and the $5 it costs to get in. The town...More

There's not too much to see here. Like many others have posted, lots of newspaper clippings. Everything seemed kind of thrown together in a very amateurish fashion. Much like this review :-)

This museum has yet to find it identity to cater to the wider variety of tourists that visit Roswell.

It's not expensive and it's sort of interesting. Be prepared to read detailed information from newspaper articles and affidavits. But it's kind of cool to see this stuff and I think there is enough unfiltered information here for people to come to their own conclusions...More

I always thought of Roswell as a small town that embraced the alien experience. As you've already figured out - this museum is #8 on Trip Advisor. This is a tourist trap you may regret. The displays are the play by play of the day...More

Why did we visit here? I'm still asking myself that question. I don't know why the UFO deal interests me-or why I'd drag my family through the miserable town of Roswell to see this stuff, but I did. We visited for about an hour, saw...More

If you are into aliens go for it but otherwise not to much to it history wise. Lots of reading so if not into reading newspaper articles it would not be for you.

This small museums has a couple of displays useful for photo-ops and lots of information to read, but is not very interactive. The gift store was disappointing.

Lynn and I and another couple recently visited the UFO museum in Roswell. The price was reasonable at $3.00 each for Seniors and Military. The museum explores the reported sightings and removal of debris from a site 75 miles northwest of Roswell. The museum has...More

I believe service dogs are welcome, since I saw one at the museum when I was there. The museum may be small but pretty spacious between displays.
