Visitor Tips and News About International UFO Museum
No trip to Roswell is complete without some time spent at The International UFO Museum & Research Center. It's a fascinating museum (and research center; make sure you check out the expansive library and periodical room on the lower level) put together by passionate folks.
A recent featured exhibit is a replica of the carved sarcophagus lid of the Palenque Astronaut, K'inich Janaab' Pakal.[Sara, ofwhimsyphotography.com, 05/12/2010]
Wow, was this place disappointing. Poor quality displays. Very amateurish. A total waste of money.[Darby, 05/01/2010]
With a $2 donation "strongly urged" (toward the building fund), we headed in. There are a lot of framed newspaper clippings, some good photos of related information. More than just Roswell, but all UFO/alien related. There is a great deal of thought-provoking information here, but most could be gathered from the internet. The fun is meeting Glenn Dennis wandering around (he started all this) and seeing the other UFO visitors. Great gift shop and comprehensive library. Good stuff for the alien implant in all of us![Mike and Geneva, 09/02/2005]
This entertaining museum is dedicated to the famous alleged crash landing of a UFO near the small town of Roswell, NM. The museum is free, however donations are appreciated according to the front desk signage. They recommend giving yourself 1 1/2 hours to see it all -- I got considerable enjoyment out of it in 30 min. Highlights include maps of the supposed crash site, newspaper clippings from across the U.S. about the event and a gruesome dummy from the Alien Autopsy hoax. Make sure you bring a small chunk of change so you can bring home one of their hundreds of alien paraphernalia.[Jason Graham, 03/26/2002]
I'm making sure you are aware of The infamous U.F.O. Museum in Roswell N.M. This museum has a vivid recreation of the alien autopsy and also a man named Bob Corn will give you a tour of the crash site if you wish. There are two U.F.O. museums located in Roswell. The largest is located on the main street (U.S. 285) in the center of town. This museum has bumper stickers that you can proudly display on your car that lets everyone know that "I crashed in Roswell"[Michael McGlue, 11/14/1996]
