The Roswell Museum and Art Center is located in Roswell, New Mexico, United States, and features exhibits about the art and history of the American Southwest. Exhibits include fine art, sculpture, prints, decorative arts, and historic artefacts. The museum operates the Patricia Lubben Bassett Art Education Center, which opened in 1998 as a learning facility in the state of New Mexico. The facility supports a museum-school-community creative exchange that provides arts education opportunities for all ages. The Robert H. Goddard Planetarium was built through an initiative shared by the museum and the Roswell Independent School District in 1968. Once considered the largest planetarium in New Mexico, it is capable of reproducing the night sky as seen from any point on earth. The multimedia laboratory features an Astronomy Resource Center and hosts the Roswell Astronomy Club “Star Parties”. Today, the planetarium continues its partnership with the museum and school district through educational and public programming – including such activities as Space Camp, NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope’s informal science education resource “ViewSpace,” and other family science events and activities.
