My husband and I visited this great museum on Saturday. Our tour guide, Helen was phenomenal and really added so much great information about the museum and the history of Binghamton. I would recommend a stop here for anyone passing through or who lives in the Binghamton area.

Its amazing to look around, close your eyes and just imagine what... More

We had our two granddaughters with us, (a teenager and young adult), and wanted to do something different that everyone would enjoy. I checked on TA and we decided to take a tour of Phelps Mansion. We weren't disappointed, except for the fact that the third floor had to be torn down a while ago. The first part of our... More

A must see if you are spending time in the area. The home is beautifully preserved and displayed. Joe, our guide was so knowledgeable and informative. It was a wonderful way to spend an hour while visiting with our daughter, a student in the University.

We were able to go to this for free with the Roberson membership. I really liked this house. They change out exhibits too so I'm looking forward to going back. We'll also make sure to go when it's decorated for Christmas. We got a guided tour. The man was very knowledgeable and good at answering our questions. We had an... More

Ornate and beautiful Victorian splendor. My friend's father was in 1 of the pictures on the wall. I was allowed to take a photo of the picture for her. They often have musical entertainment there around the holidays . Very nice
