International UFO Museum and Research Center
This educational organization founded in 1991
contains extensive documentation of the now-famous 1947 Roswell
incident, thought by many to have been an extraterrestrial landing.
The general topics of unidentified flying objects and alien contact
are documented as well. The museum's library contains nearly 55,000
documents, including books, videotapes, audiotapes, photographs,
news clippings, letters, reports, and artwork. Two videos run
continuously in the museum, which is open seven days a week
year-round. A number of exhibits are permanently mounted, and nine
computers are available for research. The museum holds a free
lecture each month and publishes a monthly newsletter. A separate
children's newsletter is published for the Kids Club, which also
sponsors a yearly children's writing contest.
