A nice local museum with interesting exhibits related to the area. Kids will like the permanent train exhibit; Christmas tree display is a big hit every year. Joining the museum gives many reciprocity advantages with other museums not only in NY state but in other states. Membership also includes Roberson Rewards which gives good discounts to local eateries and businesses.... More

We always enjoy the Christmas event at the mjuseum, but that is not the only reason for going as there are many displays of wide interest that are very well done.

My wife, an accomplished artist herself, wanted to see an exhibition by a fellow artist she knows. It was only running a couple more days, so time was of the essence. His art exhibition was very good and we enjoyed it very much. But the rest of the museum was very interesting as well. Because it is the holiday season,... More

But it certainly has a big display for the Holidays as well as presentations of local history all year long, including performing arts and planetarium. Christmas holiday week we stopped by with the grandchildren to take see about 100 Christmas trees donated and decorated by businesses,... More

Needed something to do to get out of the house. Fun to see all the decorated trees. Also all the artifacts from around the world were really interesting. I would have liked some more information about the items. Overall a fun place to wander around when you can't be outside.

There is also a collection of theme Christmas trees decorated by local organizations and businesses, which are great fun! The amazing train display and the Holiday program in the planetarium are...
