The most serious look at UFOs in Roswell, for those who go bug-eyed over little green men and their cracked-up saucers. Opened in 1992, it welcomed its five-millionth visitor in 2023.

International UFO Museum

Wonderfully kitschy. My favorite part is the brief panel about the X Files where the museum owners decided (rather tellingly) to wax poetic on how Agent Mulder represents the schizophrenic tendencies of ufo believers.

Not too large. Pure kitsch built to justify a gift shop.

"It is no concern of ours how you run your own planet, but if you threaten to extend your cheesy mix of museums and souvenir stores, this Earth of yours will be reduced to a burned-out cinder." -- Klaatu

International UFO Museum

The International UFO Museum has some very interesting exhibits and an extensive research facility. And there are many unusual sites around town.

Fun! For those traveling with pets, they let you bring them in the museum and even give your furry one a stuffed animal alien.
