A popular attraction in Roswell is undergoing its most drastic makeover ever. And as KOB Eyewitness News 4 found out, it starts with what you see from the outside.

The UFO Museum is a big part of downtown Roswell. What started as an old movie theater is now an international attraction. And now it’s getting a different kind of attention: A makeover.

New signs, new paint, and according to museum manager Mark Briscoe a whole new look.

“We’re trying to be a little bit more modern, be fresher, cleaner, updating," said Briscoe.

A patch of dirt downtown is transforming into a UFO park.

They’re also renovating the inside. All of the displays will be remodeled, some with touch screens. But that’s not all.

“We're getting one of the major props from the movie ‘Aliens’," said Briscoe. The famous flick is donating this robot to the museum.

“So, we're really looking forward to all of this," said Briscoe. So is nearby businesses.

“It’s going to bring a whole lot more business here, especially people from out of town and from other countries," said business owner Gail Willis.

Construction will start any day now. It’s expected to take a year and a half and will cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The museum is paying for the upgrade.
