Miniatures & Curious Collections Museum – Roswell, New Mexico - Atlas Obscura

Miniatures & Curious Collections Museum

Inside this small museum resides a strange mix of miniature collections passed down over time.  


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.

The museum is also home to a good-sized collection of miniature cars and automobile memorabilia. Visitors will also find a reasonably-priced gift shop. The volunteer staff are kind and willing to tell you as much as they know about the collection
