Roberson Museum and Science Center is a local treasure. The Roberson Mansion is a beautiful example of early 1900's architecture and lifestyle. The history of the Roberson's is an important part of Binghamton history and touring through the mansion is fascinating. The attached Science Center...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.
