This museum just opened a type of nature/wildlife indoor exhibit called Nature Trek that makes you feel like you are outdoors. There are animals native to our area- taxidermy, in simulated habitat with descriptions. Upstairs for adults, beautiful wildlife photos, with captions explaining how the...More

We anticipated that this would be a good experience and we were right. From an extensive model train exhibit to a photo exhibit from National Geographic (temporary) the museum was worth the time. We came back a second day to view the mansion which was...More

After living in this area for over 26 years I finally visited the museum and mansion for their Christmas tree displays. I was very impressed with the trains, artwork and all of the wonderful Christmas trees. We took a leisurely tour of the attached mansion...More

I frequent Roberson fairly often. The exhibits are always good, and the mansion itself is worth the trip. The "Christmas Tree Forest" has been a favorite of mine since childhood. I highly recommend it. There's always something good going on!

Worth the trip to view the museum and see how the wealthy lived at the turn of the century. House was built in 1907.

Well maintained and interesting facility. Our favorite was the mansion section--great spot for a wedding reception! Waited for a while at the front door--found out the entrance is only at the back.

Large HO layout depicting local area and buildings . Just wish the Diesels had digital sound and latest electronic controls. It would showcase the technology that has been integrated into model trains. I believe that it would enhance the overall experience.
