Featuring Half-Price Admission Saturday and Sunday

Roberson Museum and Science Center is hosting a Celebration this weekend, offering half-price admission October 29-30 to showcase several exciting new changes. 

Live music, living history performances and hands-on activities will highlight an opening reception Saturday, October 29 at 2pm to celebrate the Grand Opening of The Civil War Exhibition, Roberson’s New Digital Planetarium and the work being done on Roberson’s New Expanded Model Train Layout. 

Activities relating to each project will take place both Saturday and Sunday with Roberson offering the half-price admission from 12-5 both days. 

Throughout the weekend visitors can explore the New Civil War Exhibition, interact with the volunteer engineers in the Expanded Model Train Layout and experience some great new views with Digital Planetarium Show samplers.  Roberson wants to celebrate the success of these wonderful projects with the community.  The Digital Planetarium Show samplers will be free with the half-price admission. 


In addition to the three new projects, Roberson has also completed restoration of the Mansion Ballroom.  This weekend it will host “This Isn’t the Way,” a Halloween Cabaret being performed by S.R.O.
