The Roberson Museum and Science Center, located in the Alonzo Roberson Mansion, opened in 1954 as the Roberson Memorial Center. Local businessman, Alonzo Roberson, willed his home to the City of Binghamton upon his death for use as an educational center. The facility houses galleries, a planetarium, and a science center. The mansion’s carriage serves as a multipurpose educational center. The New York State Heritage Area Visitor Center is also located at the Roberson Museum and Science Center.
