UFO Museum – Roswell, New Mexico

When I was on Bing earlier, the suggestions included this link about the UFO Museum:


This is not the only UFO Museum on the planet, but it is probably the most comprehensive one.

The museum‘s official website is https://www.roswellufomuseum.com/. Their Instagram site: https://www.instagram.com/roswellufomuseum/. Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/UFOmuseum/. Various YouTube links: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=UFO+Museum. Their address 114 N Main St, Roswell, New Mexico 88203, USA; Google Maps GPS: https://www.google.com/maps/place/114+N+Main+St,+Roswell,+NM+88203/@33.3936704,-104.525211,584m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x86e26ed9c20e0ef9:0x2281eb66f8b9e566!8m2!3d33.3936704!4d-104.523017. They have a button for SnapChat, but it’s not clickable on my laptop. They have a Gift Shop: https://www.roswellufomuseum.com/gift-shop.

About Us page:

The International UFO Museum & Research Center at Roswell, New Mexico was organized to inform the public about what has come to be known as “The Roswell Incident.” The Museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to the collection and preservation of materials and information in written, audio and visual formats that are related to the 1947 Roswell Incident and other unexplained phenomena related to UFO research. The Museum endeavors to be the leading information source in history, science and research about UFO events worldwide. The International UFO Museum’s constituents are committed to gathering and disbursing to all interested parties in the most qualified and up-to-date information available. 

The corporation is governed by an established Board of Directors and operates through donations, admissions, memberships and gift shop sales. 

Becoming a Member: https://www.roswellufomuseum.com/membersI signed up for membership, but not seeing a cost so the membership has limited benefits. It would be a good way for them to get additional donations if they offered paid memberships.

It’s not the only UFO museum, according to the site’s quote above. I haven’t researched to see how many others are out there, but in looking on Twitter to see if the museum was on Twitter, I didn’t see an account. However, I noticed another UFO museum on Twitter.

You probably won’t find much in the way of genealogical information at the museum unless a relative or ancestor is mentioned in some of the articles or submitted information or documentation to them.
