  • Recently had an event at the mansion's ballroom. It is a beautiful space. While you have to provide everything but the tables & chairs, the staff worked with me to get all my decorations and dessert, plates, napkins, etc up to the top floor. It really is a blank canvas that you can make as formal or informal as you wish. Everyone had a great time, and then spent some time wandering around the rest of the mansion and museum.
  • Wow! What a great time we had today at Roberson Museum! So many wonderful exhibits. Friendly, clean, organized, affordable, just incredible! We will visit again. Thank you for a great day!
