3 Reasons You Need To Visit Roberson During The Holidays

By December 13, 2015Updates

This truly is the most wonderful time of the year and Roberson goes all out every November-December (and into January) to give you a Holiday experience that can’t be matched anywhere in the area. It’s an annual tradition of ours to visit Roberson’s “Home For The Holidays” and this time we thought we’d take you on a mini virtual field trip so that you could get a sense for what the magic is all about.

The Trees

We don’t know the exact count but we’d estimate that there are over 100, intricately adorned trees, spread throughout the museum and the mansion. The trees are so well decorated that you won’t be able to deny the beauty of the Holiday season. And there’s also an “International Forest” section which highlights the Holiday diversity of dozens of different cultures throughout the world. Cool, right?

The Trains

Yes, we know that the train exhibit is available year-round at Roberson, but there’s something about the Holidays and trains that blend so nicely together. The train exhibit is so incredibly detailed that you’ll even be able to recognize your favorite landmarks from Binghamton, Endicott and the surrounding area. Listening to the whistle of the train as it gently glides over the tracks definitely brings back some Holiday memories for us.

The Mansion

Close your eyes. Picture the Roberson Mansion. Beautiful right? Now picture the Roberson Mansion decked out for the Holidays with garland, lights, Christmas trees and dozens of other Holiday decorations set against the mansion’s detailed woodwork. This is truly a magical sight and one that you need to experience in person. Like now!

Roberson also has many other exhibits/attractions available including their digital planetarium, Treasures of the Vault, Journey From Our Prehistoric Past, and Vintage:1954-1964.

So we highly recommend that you make plans to visit Roberson during their “Home For The Holidays Exhibit”. There’s only a few weeks of magic left!
