  • 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 wit...  more »

  • At the Phelps Museum and at the Bundy House one must visit with a tour guide at ones side. The Munson Williams Proctor house doesn't allow visitors into the rooms. At the two historical locations, the guides have great training, truly know what to say. At the Phelps, my guide had to put a polish of her doctoral thesis. The Roberson has allowed me to roam the mansion unattended and even has a seat or two where I can sit down and use my imagination to reach back into the past. The Eastman in Rochester had rooms and furnishings off limits too but allocated two rooms where visitors could sit as guests. I feel honored and moved to have this access.
  • The science fiction conversation is amazing every year and they have so many amazing events year round. There is always something to see.
  • I absolutely loved the huge model train setup with different towns in the area! Grew up in Binghamton but never visited Roberson until a hometown visit at 75.
  • Roberson Museum is a staple of the local community. If you're attending a party, viewing an art exhibit, or visiting the planetarium or museum shop you're sure to have a fantastic time. I have even taken pottery class at the museum also and it was an excellent experience. If you are attending an event such as the Masquerade Ball or the Christmas tree display, be sure to arrive early...parking is limited!
  • One of my favorite places in town to spend my time!
