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...More

BEAUTIFUL especially during themed holiday times.My friend group makes it a habit to go there to take Christmas photos- which always end up looking professionally done. It's interesting, even as a college student, I love it.

Roberson Museum and Science Center is a local treasure. The Roberson Mansion is a beautiful example of early 1900's architecture and lifestyle.

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

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!
