UFO Museum

Wow, I didn't know one of these existed. Apparently, it's located in Roswell, NM... Anyone been? It intrigues me.

Be prepared for a cheap campy presentation. I guess you have to go as a Roswell tourist, I did, but it's really not anything impressive. I did get a nice shirt at the gift shop.

I agree with Jeeperdon, its just a way that Roswell is getting tourist $. It is interesting that my wife grew up in Roswell and never heard about the "little green men" until she moved away and the city relized they could make $ off them!

A town has to do what a town has to do. Also the Goddard Museum is good to see if you are in Roswell.

I went there. Was amusing, I have no complaints. Kind of campy but entertaining.

We stopped there when we did a White Sands / Carlsbad vacation. Whole trip was enjoyable.

My wife is from Roswell and the whole town is covered with alien things. The street lights down town are painted like alien heads. There used to be a bunch of alien stores and gift shops downtown. If you ever get out there check out the Mcdonalds it is shaped like a UFO.

I work in Roswell and have never been there. Have to go sometime though. Just for kicks.

We've passed through Roswell many times, but never stopped at the museum. It's a neat little town.
