Who's the Alien?

Who’s the Alien?

The International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico was organized to inform the public about what has come to be known as “the Roswell Incident.” The museum was incorporated on September 27,1991, well after the initial July 4, 1947 incident. The Museum moved to its current location in January, 1997. The exhibit hall presents witness statements, copies of newspapers, the radio announcement, the cover-up, and ongoing research about the Roswell Incident. There is also information about UFO research and study. The alien prop from the 1994 Showtime Movie “Roswell” based on the Randle/Schmitt book makes for an interesting display. Likewise, a saucer from Distortions Unlimited and aliens designed by Jordu Schell adds an extraterrestrial dimension to the museum. Other displays cover crop circles, ancient cultures, and abductions. “The Palenque Astronaut” carving from the Mayan peoples introduces cross cultural questions. I have titled the picture associated with this blog entry which was not otherwise documented. The museum’s library is surprisingly large and includes books, memorabilia, newspapers, magazines, and videos. Roswell schedules an annual UFO Festival around the 4th of July. The Roswell Incident raises interesting questions about whether we have experienced contact with aliens.
