Where are we going today?
Have you ever seen some strange lights in the sky and wondered why they are? Well, it could be a plane, BUT it also could be a UFO!
Of course, if you want to know all about UFOs and the mystery behind them, then Roswell is the place to be! Welcome to the International UFO Museum & Research Center! This is the place to be to ALL things UFO!
Do you know the history of Roswell, and the UFO events that happened there? Well, here's a little trip down history lane! Back in 1947, something mysterious happened in the northwest of Roswell during a very bad thunderstorm. And thus the mystery began!
There weren't really any answers for a few years until someone came across the story in the early 1980s, and then the search began for someone who saw this event....and you will have to visit the museum to find out what happened!
The International UFO Museum & Research Center is there for families just like yours, to provide you information on all the aspects of this amazing phenomenon. People have actually be travelling from all around the world to visit - how amazing is that!
The museum exhibits cover a whole range of topics, from those iconic Roswell Incidents, UFO sightings, crop circles, that famous Area 51, abductions, and ancient astronauts. They aren't there to convince anyone who visits that UFOs and aliens exist. It's just a place where kids and families can go to look at the information in front of them, and just ask a lot of questions.

Definitely not what we were expecting. There is nothing there for young children, expect maybe the alien displays, but those scared my daughter a little bit (she was 2.5 at the time).

Such an amazing experience! I spent hours reading all of the literature, debating with the people I was with, and enjoying myself.
