Building a Better UFO Museum in Roswell


If screwball lunatics can spend $27 million on building the Creation Museum, then we find it wonderful that there are plans in the works to spend $15 million on a museum we’d much rather visit and believe in: the new home of the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell, New Mexico (where else would you put it?). Architectural Record has gotten the first concept renders and has spoken to the team behind it, including the firm designing the building, Boston’s Ahearn-Schopfer Associates, to get all the nitty gritty on the interiors and exteriors about the place (and wow does it look great). And it sounds like they might even be able to pull the whole thing off, as this new building would mean the third time they’ve had to move due to ever-growing visitor demand to check the place out.
