The Roswell Museum and Art Center’s permanent collection is comprised of fine art, the scientific equipment of Robert H. Goddard, and the Rogers and Mary Ellen Aston Collection of the American West. Together, these three collections chronicle specific areas of cultural change in the Southwest while recognizing this region’s relationship to broader American societies.
