Home for the Holidays

Roberson announces 2010 Home for the Holidays Celebration



The lights, the trees, the celebration!  Roberson Museum and Science Center announces its annual Home for the Holidays display, November 26 – January 2. 

This year Roberson’s theme is “A Magical Time of Year.”

Community members and local business organizations are busy at work decorating their displays throughout Roberson’s mansion and museum.  Roberson invites you to rediscover the holidays and join the magic of this longstanding holiday tradition.  Each year our Home for the Holidays celebration welcomes thousands of visitors who explore the wonders of holiday traditions from around the world.

The dazzling displays throughout the mansion and museum will all be made even more fun by the presence of music, dance and interactive activities for families.
