Businessman to lead Roswell’s UFO museum

ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – A Roswell businessman has been tapped to lead Roswell’s UFO museum.

The Roswell Daily Record reports Jim Hill was named this week as the executive director of the International UFO Museum and Research Center. It’s the city’s biggest tourist destination and one of the world’s largest sites for research on extraterrestrial sightings and investigations.

Hill says his top priorities include evaluating advertising methods to increase visitors for the museum and the city and overseeing several redesign and improvement projects for the organization’s properties.

Created in 1991, the center is in the initial plans of redesigning the exhibit space for the museum and expanding both the collections and size of the library.

The UFO Museum and Research Center is one of the sponsors of the upcoming UFO Festival. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
