Welcome to the virtual home of the Texas UFO Museum and Research Library, a clearinghouse for information about major UFO cases that have occurred in the state of Texas or that have strong ties to Texas. As we develop this site further, this will become the world’s top online destination for data about historic Texas UFO cases as well as recent encounters that are grabbed from today’s headlines. Also, a physical, brick-and-mortar Texas UFO Museum is now in the early planning stages.
