We were visiting family in Binghamton recently and needed a way to spend the afternoon with 13 and 11 year old kids. We spent several hours wandering around the museum's several halls, gift shop and mansion. The planetarium was closed and I would suggest they at least offer one showing during the weekday - as that was really the only... More

So this visit wasn't at the weekend, so some parts of the museum e.g., the planetarium were closed. The museum is in a new building connected to the old mansion previously occupied by the Robersons. On the ground floor there's a fantastic model railway, together with rooms showing art works. We decided to go up to the top floor and... More

Roberson has lovely displays that change regularly. In our area, the Christmas tree display is probably most well known (and beloved), showcasing different cultural traditions. There are regular local and regional exhibits. The Roberson home is a beautiful facility. It's a great example of a regional museum.

This place is beautiful. A piece of the past, blended with interesting displays. At the holiday time, the Christmas trees are all over the place and individually decorated. They're beautiful!! The train room is wonderful!! You must visit!!

Thank you to all who work to maintain and support Roberson Museum. A wonderful asset to the City of Binghamton, with an array of exhibits, holiday shows and swing dances, and community revelations throughout the year.

Every time I go to Roberson I discover something new. They are always changing their displays, so you never have the same experience twice! If you are here around Christmas time, you need to go to their holiday display! Christmas trees everywhere! Only downside is if one display is closed, it kinda ruins the effect because their displays are so... More

The Roberson Museum and Mansion has something for everyone. You start with a history of the area, including the Indian Nations. There is currently a prehistoric exhibit and one on the Civil War that includes interesting photos of historical figures of the time, as well as artifacts. The Fine Arts section is great, with several Salvado Dalis and a Picasso.... More

We are members, so we go to the museum several times a year. There is always plenty to see and do. We enjoy the planetarium shows and the model train exhibits. The mansion is a must for anyone who loves Victorian houses. They always have great exhibits both permanent and temporary. The holiday tree display is a must. Check your... More
