Roberson is an accredited member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), since May 1, 1973. It received its re-accreditation on March 1, 1990 and again on December 3, 2003, with the next on November 1, 2017.
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.
Roberson joined the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) on June 18, 1985.
