Lots to see!

The train set up is great, except you can't see the one side. There is lots to see as well. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

It was very nice, I especially liked the Christmas trees, and all of the cool themes, but I do wish that they had more hands-on stuff. You could bring a camera, ore just look at the displays. You could easily just quickly look at everything, or carefully read everything.

Had a little time to kill and the Roberson was just a few blocks away and I was told how beautiful it was decorated for Christmas. There was at least 100 trees all beautiful. The Manson was also decorated. There was a retro 50's display which was nice and HO train display. There was also history of the area. Staff... More

This is a nice local museum anytime but it is super during the Christmas holidays when they have dozens of decorated Christmas trees and a large model train display. Check their website for hours and admission prices. At the time of this review (2015) under age 4 were free admission and our 2 1/2 year old grandchildren just loved the... More

Just visited the annual Christmas Tree Forest. It brought back wonderful memories of Me visiting there as a child. What a beautiful display of trees! Also love to see the mansion and dream of the life of the people who lived there! A great place for all!

The Roberson is an eclectic mix of art, a great miniature railroad, and a variety of timely displays. It is an excellent small-city museum, well worth the visit if in town.

I discovered the Roberson Museum and Science Center through a Facebook acquaintance and was impressed with the variety of exhibits on display. I took my two middle schoolers and it was a perfect day trip. They loved the prehistoric animal display and the planetarium show, which rotates shows throughout the month. The holiday displays were just as breath-taking as is... More

We visit Roberson Museum a few times a year and one visit is always at Christmastime. The Roberson Home for the Holidays is a great attraction to bring families together. The displays are decorated Christmas trees representing countries from all over the world. The whole place is filled with wonderment for young and old. The children will enjoy the permanent... More

What a great display of wonderfully decorated Christmas trees! The whole museum sparkles with holiday spirit. They also have the other parts of the museum open too. I went with my wife, daughter and our two grandchildren and we left sparkling eyes and happy hearts. If your a native or just visiting don't miss it!!!
