A gem. Eclectic collection, great HO train layout, and a planetarium also a beautiful mansion. The planetarium has several shows that vary daily, good for kids. The collection varies from art to sculpture to 1950s to 1960s music and memorabilia. The train layout is extensive and you can see it up close. Several local towns are modeled.

I am always pleasantly surprised, every time I make another visit to Roberson. One of my visits was during the Holiday season, and I can can't say enough about the tree displays and the train Exhibit. I've also visited for an American History piece on the region. I found it very enlightening. As a local, what you may not realize... More

Loved : ->The train exhibit. I love model trains, and the room full of trains was fun to look through. ->The Mansion - what a place! Amazing wood working and construction. Fun to imagine what life back then would have been like. Didn't like: ->small. We had a reciprocal pass, so we got in free. Otherwise I don't know if... More

Decent museum, best part was the model train exhibit, I was fascinated with it for hours. Exhibits were interesting, decent art works given the size of the city. Well worth the trip.

Roberson museum is always fun to go to. At different times of the year they have different events. Like miniature train shows, craft shows and the Christmas tree show. And they always have museum pieces, the miniature train display and the observatory and the Roberson mansion. It's an interesting place to spend the day. There's something for the whole family...

We have been here on several occasions and always find it entertaining. Our favorite is the planetary room. We could gaze at the ceiling for hours. They are always very knowledgeable about the planets and telescopes used. Would recommend.

Another couple and us attended the annual Masquerade Party at the mansion. Roberson combines the Roberson Mansion, the Science Center building and the Roberson Observatory. On New Years evening the mansion was open to this suit and tie affair. We knew it would be a good evening as we entered the building with fire acrobats outdoors. You receive a map... More
