Not much to see

Typical tourist trap spot. The employees are nice and the place is clean but nothing really special.

We went to Area 51 at Roswell to take pictures with the aliens. It was fun to interact and take those pictures and try to make up a funny scene.

I'm not usually a very critical person, but this was just terrible. Old, worn out, falling apart exhibit for photo ops. Super tacky, stuff was broken and falling off everything. Most of the scenes had some sort of alcohol reference- beer bottles and cans. One...More

Really fun museum, very well displayed and the path through it easy to follow and the documentation quite abundant. Nice gift shop at the end. I’m glad we went. It was as I expected.

This may have been cool once but pretty worn out now. Might be okay with kids. Kids had a good time and no one seemed bored.

Cute photo opportunities and cute alien souvenirs but no cafe anymore.... :( :( But little kids will get a kick out of it.

This place had some great designs for t-shirts but the sizes were so limited it was hard to get what we wanted. The cashier was either very shy or just indifferent about her job.

Quite a good souvenir shop. Some nice little gifts. You can pay 3$ to go through to the alien testing and research. Was okay. Little bit tired and run down but fairly funny. Cool little lit up Alien city in the final room. Worth 3$.

If you're in Roswell and want random photos this is your place. Worth the price of admission. Let your imagination run wild.

There is parking on the street as well as a large lot next to the building. You could probably get your RV in the lot.

We arrived on a Friday and squealed into their parking lot at 4:45. They were closing at 5:00 but we're happy to admit us and told us not to feel rushed.
