  • UFO Mueseum -- Not all it's cracked up to be!

    by Goliad Written May 20, 2008

    Unless you are really into UFO's, this is a big waste of your time and money. It is mainly reading news articles, letters, etc. If you were to read all the things they have on the walls, you would be in here for a couple of hours. But there is nothing to look at. The articles and letters are all there is.

    Unique Suggestions: If you are a serious UFO fanatic, you might really enjoy this -- otherwise, avoid it.

    Thw whole city!

    Well, I guess you can have a good time here, but frankly, I was disapointed by all of Roswell (including you Mr. Alien!). It's a crappy little town in New Mexico and it's kinda boring.

    Sure there's the alian thing and all, but when you get down to it, it's like being in a big gift shop with nothing but alien t-shirts and ET's poo in a jar.

    The Research center is nothing more then a room full of references to Hollywood references to Roswell in the movies and on TV. Oh my, how exciting.

    The saving grace of Roswell, is that it's near Lincoln county, where Billy the Kid did his thing and Trinity Site where the first atomic bomb was detonated. I suggest checking both of those out when you are in the area (all withing a 3 hour drive of Roswell).

    Unique Suggestions: Buy ET's poo in a jar.

    Fun Alternatives: Go to nearby Lincoln County.

    The museum is free, but accepts donations. We donated, but realized afterwards that it's a waste of money if you plan to buy anything in the gift shop. The souvenirs are rather pricey, so save your money for them instead of donating.
