Roswell Visitor Center: Pose With Aliens

Field review by the editors.

Roswell, New Mexico

The Roswell Visitor Center offers a vague promise in the slogan written on its wall, "See it for Yourself," and a much more tangible reward in the alien photo-op that takes up a healthy portion of its floor space.

Titled, simply, "Believe," the photo-op offers visitors the chance to pose between two friendly space aliens for souvenir snapshots.

The photo background and the aliens' outfits are frequently changed to correspond with the time of year. Your photographic Close Encounter with your new alien friends will not only remind you that you visited America's Saucer Crash Capital, but that you did so around St. Patrick's Day or Christmas or, more likely, during the town's annual summertime UFO Festival.
