Seriously, you can't miss it. You'll see what I mean.

The visit to the Roswell UFO Museum is a MUST for all serious Ufologists and anyone else who wants to know the truth behind the most famous of all UFO crash events (so far).
Located in a central position on the Main Street, the museum resembles a run down cinema from the outside. Indeed, there is a smallish cinema inside with seats for perhaps 20 or 30 people, which screens various UFO related films documentaries all day long. There is a board displaying what will be screened at what time so you can make sure you don't miss your favorites.
The main attraction within the museum is what they call the 'timeline' of the event. All information evidence relating to the alleged UFO crash on farm land a few miles outside the town in July 1947 is presented in chronological order around the inner walls of the main room in the museum which resembles an aircraft hangar. There is every conceivable form of documentation from scores of original signed witness affidavits to photographs telling what really happened over the couple of days and how events unfolded. They have the actual radio announcement playing that was made on the day telling of the recovered crashed UFO, and then the telex from the authorities demanding that the station 'cease transmitting'. Several key scenes of the crash site and subsequent military involvement in the recovery and cover up are reconstructed based on eye witness accounts and using props that were actually used in Roswell films.
In an adjoining room the museum has what could be the worlds largest UFO related library with what appears to be at least one copy of every single UFO book, film, photograph, magazine etc ever published or produced and thousands of associated memorabilia. There is also a merchandise shop of course, selling everything from suitably printed coffee mugs to sweatshirts.
Thanks must go to Stanton Friedman who is regarded as the original researcher on this highly important case and his excellent work on bringing the facts of the matter to the general publics attention.
In summary, the UFO Museum in Roswell should be considered the 'Mecca' of Ufology and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you really want to know the truth, you just have to go, but go early as there is so much to do and see inside that its difficult to fit everything into just one day.

Im a big ufo, conspiracy, etc buff. This place takes a little driving to get to from any airport, but if you're into this then it's worth checking out. You probably know or at least heard about the supposed UFO crash in the summer of 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico. This museum documents that supposed incident. It's small and can take as short as 15-20 minutes to go thru or you can take your time and go at a slower 30-60 minutes to take it all in. There's photos, news clips, re-created alien autopsy figures, and much more. I recommend driving to Roswell in the dead of night. It's dark and eerie on those roads and the night sky is beautiful. Who knows, you might even see something strange up there!

Ok, driving out to California from Maryland was very memoriable with a stop in Roswell, NM in August. There were aliens everywhere painted on the out side of restaurants and the museum was was a hoot. I loved the gift shop the most. When I look at my Christmas tree every year, I remember my time in Roswell as the lights blink next to the alien with a santa hat.
