Roswell isn't just about aliens and ufo. This is a great museum to learn about art, the west and Dr. Robert Goddard.

Well worth an hour or two of your day! I’m a huge Henriette Wyeth fan so this exceptional exhibition makes my heart happy! The museum also is home to Dr. Robert Goddard’s workshop. Don’t miss the museum store during your visit.
