The Invasion Station is a fun little roadside attraction and souvenir shop located in Roswell, New Mexico. They have your common souvenirs as well as locally hand made crafts. I believe they also screen their own t-shirts and have some fun tie-dye shirts that glow-in-the-dark or under black light, I can’t remember which.
Outside the shop is where it’s all at though. They have a number of unique photo ops for you to post on your social media accounts. Stand with a wooden alien, take a ride in a ufo or chill in front of the restricted area army fence. There is also a flying saucer hovering above the building.
There is a fantastic mural on the side of the building that tells the story of the owner’s grandfather, Dan Dwyer. Dan was a Lieutenant with the Roswell Fire Department and one of the firemen who responded to the alleged alien crash site in 1947. The mural depicts his story of the event that has been passed down in their family.
It’s a fun spot not to be missed when visiting the city.
