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

Wonderful all year long, but they go all out for the International Holiday exhibit and the mansion is beautifully decorated and live musicians are entertaining. I can visit the mansion and museum over and over again and never get bored.

I had no idea that I would learn so much about the Civil War in New York! The mansion was all decked out for Christmas. What a pretty time to visit. The website said they were closed for the first 2 weeks in January, but when I called they said they were open until Jan 5th.

But I would have enjoyed the visit a little more had I visited outside of the Christmas season. Right now you cannot see the forest for the Christmas trees, which are everywhere in overabundance. The historic house is beautifully kept up, and while the lighting and decorations at this time of year are totally understandable, the former plays second fiddle... More
