The Roberson Museum and Mansion has something for everyone. You start with a history of the area, including the Indian Nations. There is currently a prehistoric exhibit and one on the Civil War that includes interesting photos of historical figures of the time, as well as artifacts. The Fine Arts section is great, with several Salvado Dalis and a Picasso. Then the Mansion is gorgeous with fine woodwork, a palatial staircase, and beautiful pieces of furniture, as well as additional paintings.

The Roberson is a gem of a museum, right here is in Binghamton.

We are members, so we go to the museum several times a year. There is always plenty to see and do. We enjoy the planetarium shows and the model train exhibits. The mansion is a must for anyone who loves Victorian houses.
They always have great exhibits both permanent and temporary. The holiday tree display is a must.
Check your local museum membership, you probably have reciprocal privilidges with the Roberson. It's a great place to spend an afternoon.

Roberson has an amazing model train display, an old mansion to explore, a planetarium, rod sterling and other famous history of the area. A nice gift shop and a lot of things to look at. Throughout the year they host many interesting events, like the around the world christmas trees. Or they have a huge train event also, that we enjoy.

I had no idea that I would learn so much about the Civil War in New York! The mansion was all decked out for Christmas. What a pretty time to visit. The website said they were closed for the first 2 weeks in January, but when I called they said they were open until Jan 5th.
