    Take screenshots of them and put them in an Album in the Photos app.
    Forward them to a SMS non iMessage email address, then drop them in a folder. You could even create a new folder and title it "Messages".
    I could't decide which was the better workaround! SO combined for best answer!

    If you have messages set to "forever" in settlngs > Messages, they are all in the messages app if you want to scroll up far enough. They may be backed up in iCloud. But I'm not sure they can be viewed at iCloud.com on computer.
