Welcome home for the holidays at the Roberson Museum



A sure sign of the holidays is already welcoming visitors.

The annual Roberson Museum Home for the Holidays exhibit opened on November 18 and is available seven days a week until the first week of January.

The museum and former home of Alonzo and Margaret Roberson at the turn of the previous century (1907) are adorned with design and artistic decorations as well as exhibits that showcase the ethnic diversity of the community.

Once again this year, the museum is taking reservations to allow small groups to take the time to enjoy the exhibition. Visit www.roberson.org for more information on schedules and to select a day to visit.

Roberson also allows people to “pay it forward” and purchase entrance tickets to give away to people in the community who might not otherwise be able to enjoy the exhibits. Contact the Roberson Museum for more information at (607) 772-0660.

On the edition of the weekly local public affairs show: Close-up on the south row airing Nov. 27-28 on Townsquare Binghamton radio stations, Roberson Museum and Science Center director Michael Grasso talks about this year’s Home for the Holidays, including a very clever tree skirt on the evergreen leaves of the Boy Scouts.
