Additional information

Roberson is an accredited member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), since May 1, 1973. It was re-accredited on March 1, 1990; December 3, 2003; and March 4, 2019.

AAM was founded in 1906, but did not start the accreditation program until 1971, so Roberson was among the first to have received the coveted designation. AAM accredited museums rank in the top 3 percent of all the museums in the United States.
