Miniatures & Curious Collections Museum

Miniatures & Curious Collections Museum is a breath of fresh air in a town otherwise obsessed with alien imagery. 

According to one of the volunteers, this museum was started when the children of a Roswell-area miniature collectors group inherited the fruits of their parent’s hobby. The museum is filled with miniature diorama displays,  along with miniature collections of mismatched proportions and styles. There is also a bizarre small-to-large foot sculpture display that adds to the charming confusion of this obscure location.
